Academic Strategic Directions
Post-Secondary Education in the Fourth Industrial Revolution
Janet Hyde’s presentation will touch on the nature of post-secondary education in 2030, including differing views of what the academy may look like and how it may operate. Through research and example, she will present some of the challenges and opportunities inherent in supporting the emerging economy, changing demographics, and changing expectations of post-secondary educators. She will suggest some approaches to consider that could lead to more nimble post-secondary organizations and will conclude with techniques for achieving meaningful change in the post-secondary sector that require collaboration between SEM professionals, academic leaders, and faculty.
