BUiD’s Registrar and Chief Administrative Officer talks about future-proofing the university campus

 

In an article published by the Higher Education Digest, Hugh Martin, BUiD’s Registrar and Chief Administrative Officer talks about future-proofing the university campus. Hugh discusses the role of the university campus – and especially the wild assertion that campuses will disappear in the future. He also stresses the importance of face-to-face on-campus engagement, and the reasons why students come to campus and why they will continue to need and want to come to campus.

 

He argues that technology offers slicker, more efficient methods to a model that has lasted for over a millennium but it doesn’t offer an alternative. So it is essential that we continue to plan, design, build, and inhabit campuses, however they morph and adapt to future developments. Physical campuses alongside online environments enable us to do what we do best in helping students to become independent learners.
