21st Century Learners - and their approaches to learning - 1 views

  •  
    Over time the learner has been the explorer of knowledge, its accumulator and skilled 'access-or'. In the 21st century challenges and demands are expanding and changing again. Our new society's environment is one of rapid communication, action and change, of intricate social activity and a huge potential for new knowledge.

    What are the models of the learner for this brave new world? How can higher education create these models and support the learners who aspire to them? This paper postulates four models of the learner of the future:

    * the collaborator: for whom networks of knowledge, skills and ideas are the source of learning
    * the free agent: utilising flexible, continuous, open-ended and life-long styles and systems of learning to the full
    * the wise analyser: able to gather, scrutinise and use evidence of effective activity and apply conclusions to new problems
    * the creative synthesiser: able to connect across themes and disciplines, cross-fertilise ideas, integrate disparate concepts and create new vision and practice.

    The paper describes an example of these kinds of learning and considers what they might imply for the development of learning in higher education in the coming century
