The 60-Year Curriculum: New Models for Lifelong Learning in the Digital Economy

Book Focus: [as gleaned from the Educause Review]

Profound changes in underlying technology (digitization), in combination with root and branch organizational adaptation (reengineering, or what is often called "digitalization"), have altered the global, socioeconomic environment. Editors Richards and Dede argue that these disruptive shifts in higher education and in working lives require a revolution in educational objectives. Their book refers to a new perspective (60YC) oriented toward continuing education and centered on six decades of employment, requiring a lifetime of learning in the context of repeated occupational change and transition. The curriculum they describe refers collectively to all the elements of educational experience. It includes not only andragogy and educational content but also services that sustain instructors and learners at multiple stages of their lives and careers. With all this in mind, it is suggested that a new metaphor is needed for this new learning and teaching model that serves a lifelong need.

This reading group will explore the disruptive shift Richards and Dede consider, collect, and explain through two questions they set forth: How do we implement a Global Network andragogical approach across the college/university? Second, how do we distribute and sustain the learning relationship between students and faculty and the higher education institution across a lifetime?
