What attributes and values will graduates in Montenegro need in the coming decade?  We cannot predict the future but we must help our students anticipate and prepare for active citizenship and continuing employability. In this process both students and their professors will need to encounter new ways of working, and deal with ‘troublesome knowledge’. In a knowledge-based global economy characterised by uncertainty, complexity, risk and speed, there needs to be a new emphasis on enquiry, ‘research-mindedness’, problem-formulation and interdisciplinary creativity. These qualities are valuable for business and industry as well as good citizenship. Examples of such approaches from different universities will be discussed, with the challenge also for professors to become ‘Academics for the 21st century’.

 

Professor Land is Professor of Higher Education at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, UK. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and a consultant for the OECD and the EU. He is the author of many books and scholarly articles on learning in universities and has given lectures in over twenty countries around the world.  The lecture is being organized jointly with the University of Montenegro.
