Gearing Up for Learning Beyond K–12

Changing technologies—as well as demographics, economics, and education policies—are rapidly transforming higher education. This short, reader-friendly book explores current trends in postsecondary education and focuses on developments most likely to impact its future. The author analyzes why we must rethink our understanding of life beyond high school to better prepare students for careers, further education, and economic prosperity.
