New Technology for a New Century
VISION FOR UNIVERSITIES - A 5-10-YEAR PERSPECTIVE
Prof. Esben MUNK SØRENSEN, Denmark
At present the institutions of higher education are facing considerable challenges in consequence of the development of communication technology during the last ten years. From the mid-80s and till today there has been a permanent development of new technological tools. The development of the coming years will imply still simpler and more powerful tools for communication and with that also learning. The access to knowledge and with it acquisition of competence gets more transparent and democratic and will, at the same time, liberate qualifying further education from the historically conditioned unified connection to nation states and their institutions.
