The trends – competency-based learning, unbundling, startups & capital inflow, new pedagogical models, technology, etc – will change higher education dramatically. No one knows how these trends will track or what the university will look like in the future. I was stunned and disappointed at the lack of focus on data, analytics, and evidence. We can’t do that without a far better data infrastructure and greater analytics focus.

Digitization is deceptive in that the deep impact isn’t readily observable.
