Higher Creducation: Do Students Go to College to Get Educated or to Get a Degree? - Kevin M. Guthrie, Ithaka S+R Blog

What remains to be seen in today’s rapidly changing economy and society is whether your success in the future will be determined more by whether you have been well-educated or if you have a credential from a place that indicates you are well educated. History seems to have favored the latter. The increase in digital surrogates of our work, connected by the network, combined with more of a gig-based and do-it-yourself economy, may increasingly favor what you know and the actual work you have done, rather than where you may have done it. If that is true, institutions of “higher creducation” will need to become better at education.
