JISC CETIS 2010 Keynote 1 DIY U: The Transformation of Higher Education Anya Kamenetz

The Cathedral of Rationality


Advance the 'Idea of Modernity'

Medieval Idea .. hardly changed


US 1960s The Masterplan, entry to middle class, share wealth based on merit, public funding

UK Rapid Widening Participation, ouch!! - feeling the pain


An Idea Out of Capacity?

Tuition Fees Rising Sharply, mass participation, shift cost from subsidy to student, student loans, assumption: impossible to increase quality and cut costs at the same time

Behind Digital Children, education not adopting technology fast enough, teach themselves, attention deficit ... disordered?

The Future is Open



attractive/acessible, e.g. TED

updated constantly


free/affordable, e.g. open textbooks

we all love it "like kittens"


personal learning networks

knowledge networks: make complexity simpler

help each other learn, e.g you tube

formalise peer learning, e.g. P2PU, e.g. open study



affordability: what is the value of accreditation?

professional networks, peer review rather than certification?, is after all important to researchers, what about professional certification?, examples in design, web development, software engineering, do they apply to other disciplines?, discipline specific combinations of openness?, medicine?, github, like research data not publications idea

is accreditation the same as authority?

The New Way

multiple learning routes






personal learning environments


"No Going Back"

iTunes U? (Digital Music Parallel)

shift from paying recording to live performance

but!!, suggests more open content ..., lower value, ... but pay premium for the live university 'experience'?, value add?

? where do universities 'add value' in a more diverse learning supply chain, direct investment, don't duplicate low value adding that can be shared/provided elsewhere

National Centre for Academic Transformation

'Emporium' Assessment Technology, -39% cost, better feedback

Open University of Catalunya

100% online

-50% operational cost

200 professors/2500 online mentors, 50,000 students


University as Organisers of 'Care'?

Are you a Socialist?

combating the idea that public investments = helping people who won't help themselves

The Parents Fear (of not sending their child to university)

Collegiality and Collaboration for Socialization?

many of the questions express sceptism about the open socialization aspect

Worrying Comparison with Mortgage Bubble
