Abstract

Universities exist as central players in the higher education reform movement. This chapter identifies types of shifts underway and upcoming student characteristics and needs. This occurs in a complex context of other changes, all leading to possible changes in education delivery and faculty role change. Adjustments to education delivery along with faculty role redefinition will allow for more access to learning outcomes. It will also prepare diverse graduates to live, work, and thrive in a changing, complex, global society. Student-centered pedagogy that adds teaching about learning through flexible, personalized learning opportunities takes the pressure off faculty alone to improve teaching quality and prepares graduates for a lifetime of learning.
