Breaking the University From the Inside Out

Higher education does plenty of R&D on everything from anthropology to zoology but it lacks frameworks for incubating, testing and implementing ideas about teaching and learning within universities. To foment “more than incremental” change, some schools are creating safe-to-fail sandboxes where academics can run pilots with edtech entrepreneurs and measure the effects of those experiments. This session will highlight examples of these emerging R&D models and ask two questions: How can we intentionally design universities to change fast--even as fast as the needs of students themselves are changing? And what is the role of edtech organizations--either for-profit or not--in these sandboxes?
