Using technology to stave off rising costs

“The ‘Cost Disease’ in Higher Education: Is Technology the Answer?”

William G. Bowen, 2012

Bowen examines key aspects of economics in higher education—such as cost trends, affordability issues, and productivity—and the potential impact online learning could have on them.  Written by William G. Bowen, founding chairman of ITHAKA and board member, this two-part lecture was first presented through the Tanner Lecture Series  in October 2012.  Taking a system-wide perspective, Bowen provides context for the rising costs in higher education, particularly at public institutions, and discusses how those costs might be addressed through the use of new technologies.
