Book Overview
The Future of University Credentials offers a thorough and urgently needed overview of the burgeoning world of university degrees and credentials. At a time of heightened attention to how universities and colleges are preparing young people for the working world, questions about the meaning and value of university credentials have become especially prominent. Sean Gallagher guides us through this fast-changing terrain, providing much-needed context, details, and insights. The book casts a wide net, focusing on traditional higher education degrees and on the myriad certificates and other postsecondary awards that universities and other institutions now issue. He describes the entire ecosystem of credentials, including universities and colleges, employers, government agencies, policy makers and influencers--and, not least, the students whose futures are profoundly affected by these certifications. And he looks intently at where university credentials might be headed, as educational institutions seek to best serve students and employers in a rapidly changing world. The result is an unprecedented, comprehensive look at the current credentialing landscape in higher education--as well as at the future challenges and opportunities for this vital field.
Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover The Future of University Credentials offers a thorough and urgently needed overview of the burgeoning world of university degrees and credentials. The book casts a wide net, focusing on traditional higher education degrees and on the myriad certificates and other postsecondary awards that universities and other institutions now issue. Sean R. Gallagher describes the entire ecosystem, including universities and colleges, employers, government agencies, policy makers and influencers, technology companies, and the students whose futures are profoundly affected by these credentials. This book brings into clear and compelling focus the limits of how our system works today, how it has evolved in recent years, and how we might do better tomorrow. It should be used as both a guide to our current situation and as a catalyst for a broader and richer conversation about education and employment, individuals and communities, and both the public and private good of education. Our future depends on it. --From the foreword by Diana G. Oblinger, president emerita, EDUCAUSE Sean Gallagher provides a thoroughly researched and deeply insightful journey through the past, present, and potential futures of university credentialing. His separation of hype from reality should provide both comfort and a sense of urgency to proponents of disruptive change and supporters of the status quo alike. This is an invaluable resource for anyone thinking seriously about the future of higher education. --Lloyd Armstrong, provost emeritus, University of Southern California The Future of University Credentials is an excellent overview of the history and current state of academic and professional credentials. Our world is undergoing widespread and rapid change, and all of us in higher education and business need to understand the shift toward online credentials, badges, and many new forms of professional certification. I applaud Sean Gallagher for describing and exploring this sector in a clear and useful way, so that people can quickly learn what's going on, and so that they can understand and anticipate the disruptive changes ahead. --Josh Bersin, industry analyst and researcher, and principal and founder, Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP Sean R. Gallagher is the chief strategy officer for Northeastern University's Global Network.
