Higher education institutions are in crisis, and not just since COVID-19 has forced all instruction online. Many countries around the world are taking note of income inequalities that translate to severe educational gaps. The possibility of more digital learning therefore also becomes a question of innovative business models in higher ed. In this episode we ask: what pays off? What are current business models of higher ed? Which demands do we place on higher ed institutions going forward? What new types of universities might serve new kinds of students? And what role can digital learning play for more equitable access to education?
In the fourth episode, Renata Suter and Andrew Rosen join us to talk about new business models for higher education. Renata Suter is a behavioral scientist and Chief Education Officer of Kiron Open Higher Education. Andrew Rosen is Chairman and CEO of Kaplan, Inc. and writes about US-American higher education. Together they will offer insight into how education systems must adapt to new technologies and new demands.
