Wildawsky, B., & Litan, R. E. College 2.0: An entrepreneurial approach to reforming higher education – overcoming barriers and fostering innovation. Ewing Marion Kaufmann Foundation, Kansas City, MO, 2012. Pages: 80.
Published at the beginning of June, this report brings together essays and summaries of discussions that took place at a gathering of higher education scholars, representatives of alumni groups, online universities, and private for-profit providers in December 2011. These analyses offer a window into how a range of experts and practitioners approach the question of what is wrong with U.S. higher education, and how it ought to be fixed. The essays are organised along six broad themes: tackling campus level obstacles to innovation, re-thinking accreditation, streamlining regulations, improving incentives to boost academic productivity, filling information gaps about student learning and job market outcomes, and overcoming barriers to taking innovation to scale.Ewing Marion Kaufmann Foundation
