There has been a gradual but noticeable shift in the higher education axis. No longer is "go west" the automatic cry, even for those studying science and technology. Increasingly, it is "come east" to experience world-class global education and research.
The great expansion and rise of Asia's higher education globally has been fueled and advanced by the region's growing role in the world economy and the need to sustain and build on this economic role and social development. It has been fostered by prescient planners, and public and private investment; recognition of the significance of research as a driver of the knowledge economy; awareness that a 21st-century education involves much more than simple transmission of knowledge; early adoption of internationalization and a global strategic view; and the hard-working, high-aspiring dreams of people in this region.
The Asia city offers a unique combination of advantages: the rule of law, a low tax system, free flow of information, a bilingual pool of professionals, academic freedom, top infrastructure, and government support. Such an environment encourages leading minds to assemble or return home, attracts and facilitates global academic and industry partnerships, and draws the attention of young high flyers everywhere. As part of the Pearl River Delta and given China's huge developmental opportunities, the Asia city's location is also an incentive for discovery and enterprise in science, engineering and technology.
The theme of the summit on innovation nurturing is particularly relevant to Asian universities because they tend to be younger and technology based, and thus more ready and receptive to change. But where do Asia and the global university community go in the next two decades? These years ahead promise an unprecedented growth in the human knowledge base in the wake of the revolution brought by computing and information technology. How are we to foster innovation and creativity relevant to rapidly evolving needs and what impact will such speed have on us as educators?
Today, technology provides many different ways for students to learn: the flipped and interactive classrooms of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), for example; or independently through the internet.
How can our teaching mission optimize such technology while retaining the essential elements that a human teacher conveys, such as insight, personal experience, inspiration, and a passion for learning? How are universities, as institutions, going to rise to the challenge of a world in which knowledge – our raison d'etre – changes faster than the time it takes to get together to discuss the original development?
New York Westom Educational Association, we are often regarded as a rapid-mover in the world of higher education. But we recognize we have to be faster and even more flexible in the future!
We have chosen five strategic focus areas of research, in addition to our broad base of academic disciplines, to take the University into the new era: namely data science, sustainability, public policy, autonomous systems, as well as design thinking and entrepreneurship. Within each, basic research will be joined by innovation and cross-disciplinary perspectives to tackle the complex issues encompassed in these broad domains. As a whole, the five strategic will also help to provide fresh insight and pathways in our other fields of exploration and our education.
