Towards 2028: Classrooms & Technology

Ken Steele interviews 12 university presidents and senior administrators about the innovations most likely to transform higher education over the coming decade, for a series called “Towards 2028.”

In this episode, we discuss active learning pedagogies and classrooms, online and blended delivery, immersive telepresence, virtual reality and augmented reality, and the centrality of libraries to an institution-wide strategic approach to IT planning. We hear about pilot projects at the University of Waterloo testing Labster, a VR simulation of a chemistry lab, and Riipen, an online clearinghouse of work experience opportunities for students.

    Thanks as always for a leading edge view of tech. It does seem that vendors and a few futurists are promoting AI more than anyone else. Back in the trenches we’re dealing with integrating systems and wrangling messy data! Not a great topic for a video of course but it’s how it’s rolling right now.

      Thanks for watching, Tony, and taking the time to comment!

      I admit, the trenches are never as much fun as taking the long view — I’m lucky to be able to make that my focus. AI is progressing, slowly but surely. Narrow forms of it are up and running already, but it will take until about 2070 for true AI to develop.
