Economic Need


Only one in four employers thinks that two and four year
colleges are doing a good job of preparing students for the
21st century’s global, knowledge-based economy.
If Texas is to achieve the vision of a globally competitive
workforce, it must make dramatic gains in the education
attainment of its population... Texas must more than double
annual degree production to reach the level of the best
performing country of 55% of the population ages 24-64 with
an associate degree or higher by 2025. Even with the significant
progress in increasing degree production toward the Closing the
Gaps targets, degree production in Texas is not increasing at
a rate necessary to keep pace with global competition.

Next Generation Learning Challenges


A multi-year initiative by Educause, in collaboration with
League for Innovation, Council of Chief State School Officers,
and the International Association for K-12 Online Learning and
funded by the Gates Foundation and the Hewlett Foundation,
focused on identifying and scaling technology-enabled
approaches to dramatically improve college readiness and
completion.
NGLC re-imagines the future of student success with IT as an
essential enabler, making customized, interactive learning
possible. IT also makes it possible to extend the reach and
multiply the benefits of such innovations for the thousands of
students who need them the most.
League for Innovation Conference l March 12, 2013 l Dallas, TX
Location
To develop a competency-based, low-cost Bachelor of Applied
Sciences in Organizational Leadership degree that will give Texas
students that opportunity to acquire a high-quality education
designed to provide the skills employers have identified as
necessary for the 21st century. Our new vision for the next
generation of learners involves a disruptive innovation in how
students experience higher education - a change from measuring
seat time spent sitting in the classroom to a competency-based
model focused on content mastery. The TAB Program will award
credits and degrees based on measurable competencies and
improve college access and completion by reducing educational
costs and time-to-degree.

Disruptive Innovation
Disruptive innovations are those innovations that are
simpler, more convenient, and more affordable for a new
group of non-traditional users. These innovations run
parallel to sustaining innovations but shift the paradigm
to broaden availability to non-traditional users. These
innovations improve over time and eventually overtake
the traditional paradigm.
