Vortragende

Former Head of Education, UNESCO - United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation; Vice-Chancellor, UK Open University, Vancouver Abstract Key Note
Three challenges that universities are facing today: First, can universities contribute to a healing process now that Europe stands accused as a  sick continent economically and politically? Second, can European universities implement genuine reforms for this purpose? The Bologna process is not an encouraging precedent! Third, are MOOCs the long-awaited technological revolution in higher education?

I will present a global overview of recent expansions in tertiary education and the resulting improvements in the educational attainment distributions by age and gender around the world and present alternative scenarios for the coming decades. This clearly shows that Austria has already been bypassed by several former developing countries with much more rapid expansions. I will focus on the demographic process that translates expansions in tertiary enrollment into improving attainment of the working age population several decades later. I will conclude with a survey of the many benefits of tertiary education that go beyond its economic value, including health, longevity and life satisfaction.
