Navigating Change: The Podcast from Teibel Education

Lifelong Learning — Insurgents in Traditional Ed?

Episode Summary

In [a recent editorial for the Chronicle of Higher Ed](https://chronicle.com/article/To-Reach-the-New-Market-for/145499/), Jeff Selingo offers his perspective on the gap between traditional education and new models of learning cropping up across the field. According to Selingo, "Traditional higher education tends to dismiss new entrants to the field in the belief that a college’s brand name resonates with consumers. In an age of democratized education, when learning happens everywhere, any day, throughout a person’s life, having a good brand name is no longer good enough.” This week on the show, Howard Teibel and Pete Wright discuss the massive shift occurring in traditional education and share insights on the characteristics of schools that are making this transition proactively.
