“The change in the workplace is of such magnitude that many have likened it to a tsunami,” writes McGill University Principal Suzanne Fortier. Fortier highlights the many forces affecting the workplace, including job automation and increasingly quick technological shifts, and the distinct challenges that this presents to leaders in the higher education sector. “Ultimately, it will be individuals who need to take control of their own educations in order to shape their career paths and discover new horizons of learning,” concludes Fortier. “They know that their education will never stop – and it excites them. In fact, it should excite all of us.”
