The impact of the 4th industrial revolution on higher education’s role in society
Following his well-received session at Excellence in Education 2019, Paul Johnson has gone on to explore the evolving demands of Industry 4.0 and the role Higher Education needs to play.
This in-depth report builds upon ‘Award-Winning Students, Unemployed Experts: Why Universities must respond to the shifting employment patterns of Industry 4.0’, delving further into the turbulent context of higher education. Here we acknowledge the collision of technology and education; a phenomenon that Jisc has dubbed as 'Education 4.0'
Universities can thrive in this new landscape, but only if they have the vision to reimagine their approach to digital. In this white paper, we provide tangible insight into how universities can reinvent the way they meet their students' needs when increased competition and industry change have become the new norm.
Education has been somewhat insulated from the dramatic, technology-driven changes that have transformed many sectors in the last decade. With customer expectations and competition growing ever fiercer, that seems certain to change in this next decade. For organisations that feel daunted or overwhelmed – this is an excellent overview of the issues.
