Bryan Alexander has drafted a thought piece outlining three possible scenarios for higher education operations in late 2020 with some caveats:
…in this post I am exploring future possibilities. I am not endorsing any particular analysis, political party, or course of action. I am also not assessing relative likelihood of these scenarios.
My primary target is United States academia, because of circumstances. Yet I think what follows can be applied to most nations, with some tweaking depending on local circumstances.
The comments (though not numerous) are worth reading, and the piece may be useful for those contemplating possible steps forward for their institutions as the current crisis unfolds in different contexts.
