To supplement the History and Future of (Mostly) Higher Education MOOC and as part of the FutureEd initiative, HASTAC has created The HASTAC Guide to the Future of Higher Education: Collected Readings Contributed by our Network Members, a collection of additional readings.

Chapter 4: Changing the Paradigm for Higher Education: Curriculum
This chapter switches from understanding how our present system was originally designed to the future: how we might change higher education to better suit the world we live in now. We will consider new principles, new methods, and new metrics for redesigning an innovative form of learning that helps us all with the complexities of the world we actually inhabit outside of school, all the time (including by those excluded from participation in that world by reasons of cost, country, censorship, access, ability, or other reasons). We’ll begin with three innovations on the level of curriculum:
- Practice Digital Literacies
- Find Creative Ways to Model Unlearning
- Rethinking Liberal Arts for Resilient Global Citizens
Please suggest your favorite HASTAC post about these topics using the comment feature at the bottom of the page.
