Both competition and transfer are equally insufficient as frameworks for the global education strategy we need for our complex, interconnected world. This autumn, 268 undergraduate students from 27 nations on six continents are pioneering a new “open-source” model as they begin their studies at Duke Kunshan University in China, one of the first liberal arts colleges to be founded in the 21st century.
ROBERT STEELE: There are three flaws in this otherwise excellent orientation. First, it serves the globalist agenda rather than localist self-sufficiency. Second, it does not go far enough in collapsing classroom time — the Danish PhD and University of Oklahoma MPA Extension course models are better (one week of intensive face to face with prior reading and no mercy for those who fail to prepare). Third and finally, it does not realize that education, intelligence (decision-support) and research all need to be managed integrally at all levels — a unified leadership across all three from local to global. The authors touch on open source culture being more important than open source technology, but lack a depth of understanding with respect to the specifics of the Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE) opportunities that Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Iran, Russia, South Africa, and Turkey are particularly well suited to pursue.
