In this paper, I will offer with some observations about the changing cultural and technological landscape, and argue for the changes these entail in Higher Education (HE).
The forces I wish to highlight:
- The pervasive abundance of data
- The pervasive abundance of information
- The transience of procedural knowledge
- The erosion of epistemic knowledge
From the observations about these forces, I argue for a shift to educational structures which are characterized by:
- Hybridity, in the sense of challenging boundaries between contexts
- Empowerment, in the sense of promoting the autonomy and agency of teachers and learners
- Critical, in the sense of focusing on the development of value-driven advanced epistemic practices
