Today’s colleges and universities face a far different landscape than they did a generation ago. Globalisation of what is an increasingly technology-centric economy has heightened demand for highly skilled and highly knowledgeable workers.
Four 21st century challenges for higher education are:
- Educating citizens for a global, technology-centric economy
- Meeting the needs of an expanded population of mostly non-traditional learners
- Increased competition from a wave of new learning opportunities, like online and mobile
- Consumer-oriented approach to education that drives costs down and demand for learner centric models up
Technology can play a growing role. Improved and more widely available communications and information technology has not only fostered the globalization of the economy, it is changing the way the education is delivered.
