A Georgia Institute of Technology committee created three years ago to craft a vision for the education the institution should provide in the future has laid that out in a new report, "Deliberate Innovation, Lifetime Education."

The study by the Commission on Creating the Next in Education offers a look at what the research university should be doing in 2040, and it envisions a scenario in which learners and institutions have a lifelong, symbiotic relationship made possible by new credentials, a different approach to advising, and artificial intelligence, among other things.

"This platform will blend in-person and digital learning experiences," the report states. "Advising and professional coaching that starts much earlier in high school will provide students multiple pathways through the undergraduate and graduate experience and will be sustained for a lifetime by renewable learning with multiple on- and off-ramps beyond degrees and certificates from Georgia Tech."
