Here is a slide deck  from a presentation that Josh Jarrett, Senior Program Officer in Education, Postsecondary Success at the Gates Foundation, gave on the 9/10/10.
If I could think of any slide deck that I think should be passed around the higher ed world, this would be it.
Ideally, all of us would be able to get Jarrett to come to our campuses - this talk is now first on my list of presentations that I think would draw the most productive discussion and debate.
What is most interesting from my perspective are the "five trends" that Jarrett is watching (starting slide 21), and the challenges enumerated as "waves" (on slide 39).
What has your institution / organization's reaction been to the Next Generation Learning Challenges? How can we join the Gates Foundation in supporting and participating in their efforts?
