Dede, C.J. and Richards, J. (Eds.). (2020). The 60-Year Curriculum – New Models for Lifelong Learning in the Digital Economy. London: Routledge.
We need to start thinking strategically about lifelong learning as a response to rapid change in the global economy and emerging demographic shifts. These changes are happening right in front of us, and our colleges and universities need to think about whether their current programs and modes of operation need to be re-imagined and redesigned. This book will help. With some case examples and insightful commentary, the collection of readings will inspire and encourage a healthy conversation about “what’s next?”. The title is important: will the learning students undertake at your institution prepare them for the turbulence they will experience in the next sixty years of their life? It is a good question.
