Abstract

Since last two years higher education institutions [HEI] have been trying to answer following two questions. What features the universities of the future will have? What should be done by professors, administrative staff and university leadership to be prepared for the future? Various educational organizations are under the process of evolving and adapting newer trends of knowledge dissemination. HEIs are under opinion to adopt blended learning, flipped classroom, and many other technology-driven changes in teaching and learning brought by the COVID pandemic. Faculty and staff are getting acquainted with digital learning permanently, as they will be forced to reconstruct their academic programs for skill development and rapid employment. Universities will become GREEN and more aware of health and hygiene issues. Universities will be forced to do more with less revenue. These are the emerging issues and challenges faced by all higher education institutions. This paper is an attempt to redefine few higher education notions in detail.
