Quality, Access, Affordability: Pursuing 3-Fold Gains in Higher Education.

Intro to a work-in-progress.  This book will suggest a strategic framework institutions could use to help pursue and sustain 3-fold gains [improve quality, access, and affordability]and an R&D agenda that could ultimately help widen and deepen the pursuit of 3-fold gains.  
Guest: Stephen C. Ehrmann

Moderators: Steve Gilbert, Sally Gilbert, Beth Dailey, TLT Group

Description

Summary: Over the last decade, several institutions have been reorganizing academic work in order to improve quality, access, and affordability (“3fold gains”).  These institutions are large and small, public and private, old and new.  Year by year, they have each enlarged their constellations of mutually reinforcing initiatives.  These constellations are intended not only to foster 3-fold gains but also to do so in ways that can be sustained and enlarged over the years.  They’re pushing limits that most institutions assume to be immutable constraints. This book will explore how each institution has been doing this, the subtle roles played by technologies, what the institutions have each achieved, and what can be learned from their experiences.


Drawing on the case histories, the book will suggest (1) a strategic framework institutions could use to help pursue and sustain 3-fold gains and (2) an R&D agenda that could ultimately help widen and deepen the pursuit of 3-fold gains.
