The university of the digital future : a reimagining based on the learning strategies of professionals in the digital media sectors
Bridgstock, Ruth S. (2013) The university of the digital future : a reimagining based on the learning strategies of professionals in the digital media sectors. [Working Paper] (Unpublished)
This article explores how universities might engage more effectively with the imperative to develop students’ 21st century skills for the information society, by examining learning challenges and strategies of successful digital media professionals. The findings support a significant body of literature, which argues that legacy university structures and pedagogical approaches are not conducive to optimal professional learning in the digital age. A model of one reimagining of the university is presented, which draws upon the learning preferences of the professionals in this study, as linked with extant theory relating to informal, situated, self-determined learning, communities of practice and personal learning environments.
