What are the Continuing Education Operational Models of the Future? Innovative Ideas that May Work Today but not Tomorrow and Learning to Adapt
Tue Oct 15 2019, 11:00am–11:50am
Presentation Description. Please provide a brief description of your session. This description will be used to describe your session in the conference program.
Continuing education units come in many shapes and sizes, and the operational model is often built and rebuilt over time. The terms “centralized vs. de-centralized units” has also been a topic of conversation within continuing education for decades. On many campuses, this reality has ebbed and flowed along the spectrum and has shifted based on budget, market conditions, mission-driven directives, leadership preferences, and other data or (in some cases) non-data-driven decisions. If this is our past, what is our future? This session will share a brief case study of a small continuing education unit that cycled its operations between extremes over a twelve-year period. The session will then encourage dialogue on the advantages and disadvantages of various types of structures and where we collectively see the future of continuing higher education.
