  • Is it right to imagine that in future process of acquiring knowledge called education split into three phases: basic (schools), exploratory (colleges) and innovative (universities). At university level the people will not follow the models or merely discuss the theories. They will improve existing models and introduce new models. Else, they will not qualify for a degree in higher education.

    Most importantly, they will essentially have to embrace Global Contextual Education Module that has to be invented in its true form and not in a form in which it is studied at present.
