THIS is what we need our graduates to know how to do. THIS is what we need to integrate into our teaching and learning endeavors throughout all disciplines. Why? So that when a student graduates, she can not only hit the ground running, but can keep hitting the ground running throughout her lifetime. No matter what comes down the pike, she will know how to learn, where to get information, how to sort through it and synthesize it. She can be a self-directed learner, getting training/information on demand...when she needs it.
THAT's a SOLID Return On Investment (ROI)!

[Re:] The Higher Educational Bubble Continues to Grow
I have long affirmed that such a crisis is coming and that it would arrive very suddenly after being years in the making. It is now very close - within a matter of months. 2010 some time, maybe (at the outside) 2011, at least in North America. Funding will dry up, there will be significant staff reductions, institutions will merge or close, and administrators will be desperate for alternatives. Not just in education, but education will be very hard hit, and at all levels.

In many ways, education hasn’t changed much since students sat at the feet of Socrates more than two millenniums ago. Learners still gather each autumn at colleges to listen to and be questioned by professors.
But the Internet has caused sudden shifts in other industries, from the way people read news to the way they buy music or plan travel. Might higher education be nearing such a jolt?
Can you hear the roar of the engines?! If not, keep reading...

We need to
listen to this piece and have a plan on how to respond to this trend; no joke.
I have been saying this for many months now...but I
don't think people
want to -- or like to -- hear about this impending change. Do not be misled!
The Internet causes major disruption where ever it may be found -- and higher ed
is not immune to this disruption.
