Can universities survive in their current form? Large classes and lecture-based broadcast teaching seem at odds with a) the value of university in teaching you how to learn and how to analyse and b) the way the younger generations use the knowledge available on the internet. Lots of good thinking from Don Tapscott. I wonder if this is a slightly different case to that of journalism: universities have been around for a very, very long time (I think my college was founded in 1263, for example). So the model has survived previous upheavals.
