Why Continuing Education Programs Are Poised to Become Hubs of Innovation - Michael B. Horn, EdSurge

As more adults than ever before enroll in postsecondary education programs and a variety of players—from bootcamps to online and mobile course providers—offer options tailored to match adults’ work and family circumstance, traditional colleges and universities have struggled to keep pace. Universities with a continuing education program have a valuable asset they should leverage as their hub of innovation to improve opportunities not just for adults but for all students. Because of their mission and relative autonomy on university campuses, continuing education programs—in the form of extension schools and schools of continuing and professional education—are well-positioned to experiment with different student-centered learning models, create innovative programs that generate new revenue streams, and build bridges with industry partners. http://www.edsurge.com/news/2016-08-30-why-continuing-education-programs-are-poised-to-become-hubs-of-innovation
