The Best Way to Predict the Future: Invent It
How will the organizational structures of higher education change over the next decade? What will be the major drivers of policy and practice? How will all these factors affect the education of visual and performing artists and the lives of faculty members in the visual and performing arts? The presentation addresses these questions by focusing on nine important drivers of higher education, including the rapidly increasing diversity of arts students in terms of their preferred learning styles, non-linear thinking patterns, and status as digital natives, particularly as compared with many current faculty with whom they work. How can higher education help invent the future of arts programs to best serve students in the next decade?
