OPINION: Changes to education coming rapidly, by Tom Koenninger
… ‘millennials,’ students born between 1981 and 1994 — half the student population — do not know a world without the Web and digital technology. Loretta Seppanen and David Prince, Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges, describe them as students who anticipate college tailored to their interests. "They expect learning to occur at high speed with instant feedback and payoffs." … major trends expected to affect colleges in the next 20 years: Students of color (including greater diversity of high school students), immigrants and young working adults will continue as the fastest growth segments (in an otherwise aging population and work force). Low-income adults and millennials will be in the same classes. Higher education will be a network — not separate, stand-alone colleges.
