This presentation summarizes some of the key trends in the changing ecosystem of higher education. Rather than a particular adoption of certain technology, a novel certificate or a new business model, what we explore is how the disintermediation of education is changing the boundaries, strategies and infrastructure of universities. The complex phenomena of ‘uberization’ of education offer new opportunities as well a number of deep redefinitions. What is clear is learners are in charge and education institutions are invited to re-think some of their traditional strategies.
This presentation was prepared for the 8th ENQA General Assembly (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education) in Sèvres, France, on 26-27 October 2017, hosted by the Centre International d’Etudes Pédagogiques (CIEP).
