Harnessing change in higher education

From test optional to online learning, the whole college search, application, and enrollment process has changed for applicants and schools in 2020.

When the Chronicle of Higher Education recently interviewed Pearson’s Joe Morgan, vice president of university partnerships, they asked about the impacts of these changes. He shared his insights on how colleges can find opportunities from the disruptions in higher education.

In fact, by harnessing these changes, we may open doors for new ways that:

  • colleges can assess applicants
  • applicants can evaluate their choices
  • adult learners can gain new job skills.
