W poszukiwaniu modelu uczelni przyszłości
IN SEARCH OF A MODEL OF FUTURE UNIVERSITY
Languages of publication
The paper discusses evolution of the contemporary model of the university in Europe: from Humboldtian one to the Third Generation University. In this context three scenarios of evolution of the Polish higher education system in the perspective of 2030 (elaborated in the project “Foresight Academic Mazovia 2030”) are presented. The scenario of the “Lost Opportunities” presents the most pessimistic vision of the future of Polish universities due to unfavourable external conditions and abandonments in advanced reforms of the system. The second scenario of the “Bipolar Education” describes consequences of preserving the current system of higher education with some improvements and assumptions of the stable economic growth of Poland. The third scenario of the “Red Queen” proposes a vision of radical reforms which will lead to a fundamental restructuring of the system towards open and competitive model. Given this scenario, Polish universities would improve their relative position and competitiveness at the European and global educational markets.
