Will the college of the future look more like a kindergarten classroom than a lecture hall? Knowledge is now a commodity. As a result, the need to disseminate knowledge to a lecture hall of a few hundred students is a thing of the past. So, much like your kindergarten class, college of the future will focus on project based learning. But that is not all. College of the future will also measure competencies, not credit hours. College of the future will recognize online learning as well as face-to-face learning. And employers of the future will not simply look at your concentration to measure if you’re the right fit, but rather they will look at your soft skills. What does this mean for the colleges of today? According to Fast Company, there will be casualties.
