Last week on Blursday Socials with e-Literate LIVE!, we had the pleasure of chatting with Jeff Young, the creator of the Pandemic Campus Diaries podcast, which is still one of the best ways I know of to get a feel for the varied and changing impacts of COVID-19 on students and educators. (The latest episode dropped this week and I can’t wait to listen to it.) Over the next two
COVID-19 and higher education in mid-October: infections, deaths, plans, seasons, toggle terms, and a data disaster
To forecast the future, it’s crucial to understand the present. I’ve followed that principle for years. It informs my work on many levels. That’s why today I’d like to give you all a sense of where higher education stands in the middle of October, 2020, as it grapples with COVID-19. We need to do this in order to think more effectively about where we’re headed next. I’ve been meaning to

During my time as an English PhD student at Duke, I served as a teaching assistant for experienced professors in both seminar and lecture-based courses.

How is college and university enrollment currently changing as a result of fall conditions? Have the pandemic and recession sent more people to campus? In late September the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center offered its first pass at presenting fall 2020 enrollment data. It showed an increase in graduate students attending American higher ed and a larger decrease in undergrads, together yielding a 1.9% overall downturn. Today the Clearinghouse released
On the one hand, I feel terrible for not having written for so long… On the other, it is the reality of this COVID crisis. I have been working a lot, like everyone else. No need to elaborate. I just need to get going on posting here because I like doing it. All faculty and staff at the College receive a computer with replacement every four years. This is just
The year 2020 has been synonymous with the word change. We've had so many pivotal moments in 2020, including an abrupt and revolutionary change in our corporate and educational landscapes. The institutions that we had come to think of as unchanging, the classroom, the corporate headquarters, in an instant, were changed, possibly forever.

How do colleges and universities decide whom to admit in 2020? Which aspects of an applicant’s background matter the most? What are the controversies within admissions? And where is that crucial part of higher education headed? We’ll dive into these questions tomorrow, with the help of a brilliant guest. I’m delighted to welcome Jeff Selingo back to the Future Trends Forum. Jeff just published Who Gets In and Why (our
This post is Day 14 of my #100DaysToOffload challenge. Want to get involved? Find out more at 100daystooffload.com. One thing is for certain, I’m getting more and more grumpy and bad-tempered as I read more and more about the lockdown, missed chances at preventing the spread of Covid, the uselessness of those who are supposed to be protecting the country (not profiting from it), and the endless doomscrolling I find myself caught up
