2016 scenario guide to effective tertiary education in New Zealand
Project summary of 2016 scenario guide to effective tertiary education in New Zealand.
Led by the Distance Education Association of New Zealand (DEANZ), this Collaborative Project has created the first future-focussed sector-wide set of scenarios about what effective tertiary education might look like in Aotearoa-New Zealand in 2016.
To develop these scenarios the project team interviewed 16 leaders in tertiary education using the JISC scenario building strategies, and gathered input from the broader tertiary education sector.
This work was presented at the New Zealand Tertiary Education Summits in November 2011 and April 2012 and also reviewed by the Tertiary eLearning Reference Group. The prototype web-resource was released at the DEANZ 2012 conference.
This web-resource has been designed to assist tertiary education managers and leaders to plan future organisational and programme development.
The web-resource aims to facilitate ongoing conversations about the scenarios and emerging practice. See the DEANZ 2016 discussion forum, where you can add your examples, comments and questions.
