“The challenge … is how we can adapt to all these issues without incurring fundamental change in the institution of higher education as we know it today.” ― Gerald A. Heeger, in College Planning & Management
i found this quote at the top of a page entitled "challenges for institutions" in a powerpoint presentation developed by microsoft for partners to use in selling vista to educators. while i'm not sure what specific issues mr. heeger was referring to, it is clear from the powerpoint deck that microsoft is discussing issues of collaboration, access to information, learner driven learning, etc. interesting that their tact is to assure colleges and universities that they can "adapt to all these issues without incurring fundamental change."
sheesh!, just when you think they might finally be paying attention they prove that they still think the world needs to adapt to the microsoft view of the world.
