New schools of thought: Innovative models for delivering #HigherEducation

Higher education institutions are under pressure. The ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and the measures taken to stop its spread have forced most higher education institutions around the world to suspend face-to-face teaching and shift to online classes. At the same time, advanced technologies continuously threaten to automate jobs, forcing institutions to rethink what to teach, and how to teach it. As traditional sources of public funding dry up, students and parents are questioning what type of higher education, if any, provides the best value.

In our new report, New schools of thought: Innovative models for delivering higher education, sponsored by Qatar Foundation, The Economist Intelligence Unit (The EIU) examines how five innovative higher education models address social, political and economic challenges facing academic institutions today.

Our research finds that technology continues to disrupt the higher education landscape, enabling institutions to serve a greater number of diverse students, increase tuition revenues and potentially reduce operating costs. However, not all institutions are able to benefit from radical technological change. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, those that emphasise a bespoke residential experience or experiential learning must find ways to reimagine their value proposition in an online environment.
