The objective of this course on Future Education, offered by World University Consortium is to examine key issues that need to be addressed in order to evolve a more effective form of future-oriented higher education.
There is urgent need to evolve a new paradigm in education appropriate to the needs of the 21st century. A review of education today makes evident that there is enormous scope for improving and developing the educational system. Whatever its current limitations in terms of inadequate coverage, quality and content, the means and potential exist for dramatically enhancing humanity’s individual and collective performance in virtually all spheres of our social existence by realistic, achievable improvements in education. We need a new paradigm in education capable of more fully and effectively developing the latent capacities of our youth.
