Continuous Learning and the Future of Higher Education
Heli Harrikari

Heli Harrikari Heli Harrikari (PhD) is Director
of Continuous Learning at Tampere University.

Higher education without degrees, courses and credits – and without walls? In the future, it is all about skills and competences, no matter how, where and when developed. The new needs of continuous learning challenge the traditional ways of thinking and operating in higher education. Curricula, degrees, courses and credits step aside, and the focus is shifted to skills and competences. In the future, we all understand our skills and competences transparently and receive individual guidance for developing them throughout life. Digitalization and artificial intelligence fundamentally change the way we think about higher education, as does the shift from production-based education to customer-centric thinking. All this requires also new types of business models for universities, at the same time breaking traditional structures and silos. Welcome to discuss the paradigm shift of higher education!

Heli Harrikari (PhD) is Director of Continuous Learning at Tampere University. She leads strategic reform of continuous learning where the goal is to reimagine and revise higher education thoroughly. She has extensive experience in strategic development of higher education as well as teaching in university. Previously she has worked as a researcher in industry, developing speech and language technology.
