From a JISC Blog Post:
As technology adapts at an exponential rate and becomes more and more ingrained in people’s day to day lives, it will continue to be a key asset that higher education institutions (HEIs) must make the most of to help with these and other goals.
HEIs also have a responsibility to prepare students for the changing job market as we enter the fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0. In our sector, we call this Education 4.0.
