The 21st Century Academic career

by Professor Peter McKiernan, University of Strathclyde Business School

The last generation of academics in business and management have experienced a seismic change in their portfolio of duties. Where previously there was a more gentile lifestyle of community based teaching and some writing, now there are rankings and a multitude of metrics that goes with the audit society in which we work. But, what of the future? The evolving technological context might change the shape of higher education beyond our recognition and alter the duties of the next generation of academics or even led to the end of the species itself. The lecture will explore the future of higher education from a European base and address the challenging times ahead.
