The Future is not Singular: Seven Pillars of the Future of Higher Education

29 Mar 2023
Leadership , Futures , Innovation
In 2021, there were approximately 20,000 universities operating globally. Each of those institutions immersed in a more global, diversified and complex environment, and every institution affected by great, EdTech-driven transformations. The Seven Pillars, first shared at the UNESCO World Higher Education conference 2022, represent a diverse, futures-oriented attempt to understand the major tech trends impacting higher ed. With generative AI and the macroeconomic climate as a backdrop, Pablo Langa and Laurie Forcier will discuss the seven pillars (More-Versity, Multiversity, Ecosystemic Universities, Purposeful Universities, new Pathways, Augmented Learning Experience, and Thriving in Uncertainty), which they think might be on shifting sand, and what it all means for HE right now.
