The New Learning Economy
Speaker: Prof. Michael Rosemann
Abstract: The future work of is comprehensively discussed, but the future of learning is not. This seminar is rested on the hypothesis that educational well-being will be in the future as important as physical or financial well-being. However, the current higher education sector is facing three learning disorders and a number of economic disorders creating a call for a new learning economy. Six new strategic pathways for providers of learning services will be presented which have been derived from out-of-sector studies. In sum, they lead to a comprehensive set of new education models which might change why we learn, how we learn and who is teaching us. This seminar is informed by two years of research that led to the publication of the book ‘The New Learning Economy’ (Routledge 2023) by Martin Betts and Michael Rosemann
