The Coming Revolution in University Education

Universities: Where Next?
Robert Paterson wrote this intense article earlier in the week, and I never had time to read it properly till today...but even the first section makes for fantastic reading and thinking. He makes a compelling case for an impending revolution in post-secondary education, charting converging (colliding?) revolutions in demography, values, technology and expectations of costs and services. I had no idea how universities function internally, and the article gives you that glimpse, along with an indictment of old policies and some solid predictions about where things are headed.
