Have you ever wondered why universities still educate tomorrow's managers with yesterday's tools? Our contemporary higher education landscape is facing rapid technological advancements and the promises of the web to foster a new mode of knowledge creation and collaborative learning among students around the world.
We are always online, continuously updating and connecting to electronic information nodes in the globalised digital village of the web. However, the promises of ICT and e-learning have not effectively innovated universities. Little progress has been made and resources invested into ICT adoption are frequently spent without a clear definition of objectives and change strategies. The future of learning is taking place now - and yet courses in universities are stalled in a pedagogical model oftransmitting knowledge rather than constructing solutions, following educational approaches which have been put into place centuries ago and still largely dominate teaching and learning in academia.
