In higher education we are yet to see radical
and disruptive change. Many universities
today look no different to the way they did at
the turn of the century. The business model
for universities today is not all that different to
the one that got us by 20 years ago.
However, we are on the cusp of what will be a
period of profound change.
- Students are demanding to learn in a way
that makes sense to them
- Academic roles are changing – the modern
academic has shifted away from being
an imparter of knowledge to being an
integrator of knowledge
By anticipating the potential of disruptive
technology in education and using new
developments in connectivity to our
advantage, we can ensure that the next
generation of university educated students
are even better equipped to succeed.
