2016 Scenario Guide

The 2016 scenario guide to effective tertiary education in New Zealand project provides a system-wide view of what tertiary education might look like in New Zealand in 2016. Funded by Ako Aotearoa and led by DEANZ. From this project, a web-resource has been developed that describes a series of four possible scenarios for the tertiary education sector in the future.

Project Summary

Led by the Distance Education Association of New Zealand (DEANZ), this Collaborative Project has created the first future-focussed sector-wide set of scenarios about what effective tertiary education might look like in Aotearoa-New Zealand in 2016.

To develop these scenarios the project team interviewed 16 leaders in tertiary education using the JISC scenario building strategies, and gathered input from the broader tertiary education sector.

This work was presented at the New Zealand Tertiary Education Summits in November 2011 and April 2012 and also reviewed by the Tertiary eLearning Reference Group. The prototype web-resource was released at the DEANZ 2012 conference.

This web-resource has been designed to assist tertiary education managers and leaders to plan future organisational and programme development.

The web-resource aims to facilitate ongoing conversations about the scenarios and emerging practice.
