“Change is the only constant.” This well worn phrase has special significance for higher education, where technological progress is driving a revolution for universities and business schools around the world. Experts agree the possibilities and challenges posed by tech innovation are significant and many. The growth in virtual and augmented reality will mean that learning will look and feel nothing like it does today. Right now, students rely increasingly on online courses and demand more and more digital tools to fulfil their needs. Of course, when faced with big issues like this, it’s natural for governments and analysts to talk about the need for larger budgets, a focus on the core curriculum, a back-to-basics approach to delivery, and the need for more teachers; but these are conventional solutions to new problems. Instead, forward-looking organisations promote a much more rounded approach to changing education – looking holistically at skills, knowledge and collaboration. This approach moves beyond the classroom, developing skills and knowledge needed to live and work in a competitive and fast-moving digital economy. Rather than encouraging the development of narrow skill sets that can (and ultimately will) be commoditised, institutions must lay the groundwork to encourage the development of a polymath mindset – where students are adaptable, flexible and multi-skilled. With their distinctive campuses, emphasis on teaching excellence and world-class research, universities are sometimes seen as separate from the rest of society – operating in an academic bubble. But the most savvy institutions know this simply no longer the case. With increasing populations, dwindling budgets and pressure to do more with less, the primary concern of universities in 2020 will be, much like the rest of commercial industry, how to establish a ‘unique selling point’ and stay competitive. For some this will be by expanding their missions, reaching out to ‘non-traditional’ students, and partnering with other institutions to deliver ground-breaking research. For others, it will be exploiting opportunities for students to live and study abroad, offering a truly international education experience. To ensure universities stay relevant and important, they need to change in a number of ways, including embracing institution wide edtech. So, if higher education institutions are really no longer ‘ivory towers’, and competitive advance truly comes from increased interconnectivity, how do universities reach success?

University College Cork (UCC) launched its new Academic Strategy in December and is looking to Canvas to help facilitate the shift, and support the delivery of, a student-centred teaching and learning experience with a renewed, responsive and research-led curriculum at its core.
“Working with Canvas will help us fulfil our vision to prioritise teaching and learning by delivering an outstanding student-centred experience – Professor John O'Halloran, deputy president and registrar, UCC
Canvas will become the main online platform to support teaching and learning at UCC, giving academic staff the tools to teach the university’s 17,580 full-time students in innovative ways, and offering the flexibility to deliver a connected curriculum. The process leading up to partnering with Canvas was rigorous, with UCC running extensive pilots, testing and trialling functions over the last two years and garnering the views of students and staff. Professor John O'Halloran, deputy president and registrar at University College Cork, said: “Working with Canvas will help us fulfil our vision to prioritise teaching and learning by delivering an outstanding student-centred experience. As well as the intrinsic value to pedagogy, this move will allow us to realise our ambitions to attract more national and international students, deliver a research-led curriculum, attract and retain the most talented staff and help our students become lifelong learners who continue to engage with our institution – from their first day at university to the last day of their careers.” Kenny Nicholl, general manager, EMEA at Instructure, added, “We are delighted that University College Cork has chosen Canvas not just as its institution-wide VLE, but also as a partner working closely with them in delivering their new strategic vision. By being involved at the heart of the change that’s going on at UCC, we will support the institution’s drive to differentiate itself further, driven by student-centred pedagogy.”

Collaboration, community, sharing and learning

Tom O’Mara, head of digital education at University College Cork, said: “The university was looking for far more than just a VLE that had the right functions and features. The people and services from Instructure, in conjunction with the Canvas platform, will aid our vision, and fit in with our culture. User experience is paramount, so we tested this by asking suppliers to present certain scenarios to our panel as part of the tender. This ensured that we didn't just get a world-class platform with a proven track record, but also one that would be accessible by all our users and help drive improvements in adoption and delivery. “Another big thing we look at and consider a lot at UCC is the notion of collaboration, community, sharing and learning from each other. This is why the Canvas community was a big draw as well. Too much siloing happens in education. But we can use tech to facilitate the sharing of content and good practice – for collaboration not just between staff, or students, but with other institutions.” [post_title] => University College Cork selects Canvas to provide a virtual learning environment [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => university-college-cork-selects-canvas-to-provide-a-virtual-learning-environment [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2019-02-15 09:19:23 [post_modified_gmt] => 2019-02-15 09:19:23 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://universitybusiness.co.uk/dashboard2/?post_type=articles&p=20113 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) ) [post_count] => 2 [current_post] => -1 [in_the_loop] => [post] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 26144 [post_author] => 79 [post_date] => 2019-11-05 17:36:01 [post_date_gmt] => 2019-11-05 17:36:01 [post_content] => Join our webinar and hear from Caroline Meriaux, project manager in pedagogy at the Stockholm School of Economics; Mike Day, chief digital officer at Swansea University; and Simon Thomson, director of the Centre for Innovation in Education at the University of Liverpool, as they explore the most pressing issues higher education institutions are facing right now and how they’ve had to learn to adapt in order to ensure success.
