University of Southampton (UNITED KINGDOM)
Higher education institutions are large, complex, adaptive social systems like all other human organizations. Over the last decade, Higher Education around the world is facing a number of challenges and potential threats to effective learning and teaching support. In recent years considerable interest has focused on identifying those challenges, identifying the threats and proposing ways to address them. However, the relevant literature on higher education challenges is scattered over many textbooks, conferences and journals. This paper presents a comprehensive presentation of all those challenges found in different literatures in a structured way. Also this study will identify how technology and institutions’ data infrastructures could response to address those challenges in this changing world where students are changing, their learning styles are changing, and the technologies to accommodate their needs are changing. We also speculate on how Higher Education institution infrastructures could be utilized to this end and we propose a number of research topics in this direction.
