Innovating for the Future
Abstract: This month, the world lost one of its greatest innovators—Steve Jobs, cofounder of Apple Inc. When thinking of Jobs, you probably think of how products such as the iPod, iPhone, iPad and iMac have revolutionized the consumer technology space. But these innovations also made a tremendous impact on higher education, as well. This article discusses content in the October 2011 issue of Higher Education Brief that highlights the importance of innovation in higher education and how the application of new ideas and new technologies remain paramount concerns for all educators interested in moving past the status quo and exploring new possibilities. How did Jobs achieve the success he did as an innovator in education, and how can we use what we’ve learned from him to continue to innovate and improve quality in education in the future?
