Bundling with other universities the way to go rather than MOOCs?

It seems everyone is getting on board with student-centred and flipped learning. Some nuggets here in these different videos, which are useful for my own subject design. Even if we don’t agree with it all, it is testimony to a massive, collective cultural change that is going on with how ‘teaching’ should function and how we create learning environments.

This is interesting. It may not come about and even if it does, we may strongly disagree with it, but it is worth contemplating, if only to position ourselves for all options in the future. http://sr.ithaka.org/blog-individual/higher-education-free-agent-future
