Using Jeff Conklin's (CogNexus Institute) notion of 'wicked problems,' a group of 100 distinguished scholars from around the world met in January 2013 to articulate the five most current pressing topics in higher education. What distinguishes these particular issues is that they are extremely difficult and even seemingly impossible to solve, because of the complex or ever-changing environments in which they arise. The resulting two-page communique is well worth the read: http://www.nmc.org/pdf/2013-Horizon-Project-Summit-Communique.pdf
