Informed Scotland October 2020 – College & university futures

The impact of the pandemic continues to dominate learning & skills, including increasing the pace and extent of change being considered by organisations across the landscape.

In October the focus was on the future for further and higher education.

Phase one of the Scottish Funding Council’s three-phase review of colleges and universities, and the UK-wide final report of the Independent Commission into the College of the Future were both published. (A Scotland-specific report from the Commission is due by the end of the year.) The Higher Education Policy Institute published a report considering the likely Demand for Higher Education to 2035. And separate reports by partners led by College Development Network and Jisc encourage colleges and universities respectively to take a longer-term strategic look at the use of digital technology.
