30: The University of the Future – A Haven for Self-Realisation?

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / World Café
english language

The role of universities will reverse: They will no longer be viewed as a public good for social and economic success, or as an individual benefit for students in terms of career prospects. Instead they will become havens for personal development and self-realisation within an increasingly instrumentalised and marketised world of education and training. A negative scenario? Not necessarily.
