A companion piece to the story below - what will the faculty of the future look like?

Here's an excerpt from the Chronicle of Higher Ed story:

The faculty workplace has changed significantly in the last 20 years: More women, minority professors, and adjuncts have joined the professoriate. Information technology has led to new opportunities and expectations. The economic crisis has complicated long-term planning for scholars and institutions alike. We asked seven scholars from several fields and generations how they think the academic workplace — and, in particular, the job satisfaction and expectations of a faculty career — will change over the next 20 years.

Unlike the CHE's special fee-based report on the profile of future university students (see post below), this one is free.  Read the predictions of the magnificent seven here.

I am the scholarship dude.
