Abstract:

This Major Research Project (MRP) examines the postsecondary
environment (PSE) in an effort to reimagine and explore its potential future. This project revealed how from a linear system with limited customer segments, the PSE system may transform into a multifaceted, multi-segmented, adaptable holistic system. Presented are a series of recommendations created for post-secondary institutions to consider. A primary recommendation is an authentic student-centered atmosphere with a focus on quality education, experience and freedom of choice that is cost efficient. These recommendations are derived from an assessment of stakeholders’ needs and desired results.
Introduced are experts’ opinions and students’ true inclinations for the post-secondary educational environment. The project includes an analysis of external and internal interventions affecting post-secondary education in the form of identified trends and drivers. This project referenced the academics’ and experts’ opinions through the interview process, literature review and presented alternative scenarios for the PSE environment. The decision belongs to University or College whether or not to use the results of this research and put recommendations forward into actions for returns that would benefit PSE stakeholders.
