Rethinking the role of Higher Education
Repensar el papel de la Educación Superior

Santiago Mengual-Andrés


The market has to change as our current society becomes increasingly diverse and so do workers’ competences, which are now more and more cross-disciplinary. New training models have appeared seeking to meet such market and society needs. This editorial reflects on the pressing need to redefine university education and the accreditation processes in non-formal education.




En el contexto actual en el que cada vez la sociedad es más plural, las necesidades del mercado cambiantes y las competencias que se requieren a los trabajadores más tranversales, aparecen nuevas modalidades de formación, modalidades asociadas a las necesidades del mercado y al interés de las personas. Este editorial reflexiona sobre la necesaria redefinición de la educación universitaria y los procesos de acreditación de la educación no formal
