LLL, Lifelong Learning

08 octobre 2017

Lifetime Learning is the New Model for Higher Education Blog. The future of higher education will likely be crafted by both incremental changes and a drastic rethinking of the institutional model, according to the predictions of Jeff Selingo, Washington Post columnist and author of three books, most recently, There Is Life After College. “We have to think of new models to serve lifelong learners,” said Selingo, who delivered the keynote address on Wednesday at the Campus Tech conference in Chicago.

Lifelong learning requires an evolving university

By Margaret Andrews. The World Health Organization shows global average life expectancy for those born in 2015 at 71.4 years – an increase from the cohort born in 2000, whose life expectancy at birth was 66.4. As you might imagine, life expectancy numbers range widely by country, from a high of 89.5 years in Monaco to a low of 50.2 in Chad, and everything in between. For example, Japan has an average life expectancy of 85, Iceland’s is 83, France’s is 81.8, the United Kingdom’s is 80.7, the United States’ is 79.8, Mexico’s is 75.9, Saudi Arabia’s is 75.3 and India’s is 68.5.

Universities need to evolve along with the trend towards learning throughout life

By Brendan O’Malley – Managing Editor. In our World Blog this week, Margaret Andrews concedes that change is difficult but says universities need to adapt to support lifelong learning as the students of the future will want and need to learn throughout their lives.
   In Commentary, Norbert Sabic says the Hungarian government somehow seems able to reconcile its desire for increased student mobility and academic cooperation with nationalistic tunes, but warns that some higher education principles – and even entire institutions – may fall victim to right-wing political agendas. Thomas Jørgensen suggests that the easiest path forward for UK universities after Brexit is an agreement with European Union research and student mobility programmes because trade deals would be subject to individual countries’ agreement and restrictions. And Damtew Teferra contends that the best way to elevate universities in Africa to world-class, research-oriented institutions would be to strategically consolidate the existing flagship universities.
   Also in Commentary, V Santhakumar says using higher education to achieve social inclusion of lower castes in India could do with a different approach – and India could learn some lessons on this from Brazil. And Bruno Morche argues that Latin American universities need to embrace a more international outlook to improve the region’s performance in global rankings and enable it to compete on a global stage.
   In Features, Shuriah Niazi reports that the suicide of a student who achieved top marks in school subjects has highlighted the despair of thousands of students from India’s lower caste who have been denied entry to medical college following changes in medical admissions policy that have been upheld by the Supreme Court. And Jan Petter Myklebust reports that initiatives in Finland towards new educational export projects have been given government support and are mushrooming.
   In a Special Report on African scholarly publishing, Thierry Luescher and François van Schalkwyk look at how African presses are faring under the global publishing industry’s current market conditions, while Veronica Klipp writes with regret that the overwhelming proportion of South African research goes to international publishers, and says university presses in Africa would have to radically improve their capacity to remedy the situation.
