Education Of The Future In The Conditions Of Vuca World


The paper studies the changes in education in the conditions of the VUCA world. The comparative analysis of futurological concepts of education by A. Toffler, M. Castells, C. Kerr and modern researchers is carried out. New competences of the graduate of the University of the Future are determined, which the authors characterize as “metaqualification”, “transfessionalism”, “existential” competences, which are in demand in the VUCA world. The main methods are comparative analysis of the concepts of the University of the Future in new socio-cultural conditions and forecasting of a new model of education. The University of the Future is considered as a cluster-network structure, a complex phenomenon formed by the cluster-network interaction of the university, business and state in its unity and integrity engaged in the processes of the generation of new knowledge, new technologies and a graduate of new generation. The University of the Future is focused on a new type of students, characterized by the ability to self-development, self-formation and innovative decision-making throughout life in the conditions of uncertainty, over-choice, over-complexity and fluid reality. It is concluded that the university has a huge adaptive potential. The mechanism of adaptation of the university is interpreted as the choice of the logic of development (evolution of the forms of the university). The result of adaptation is presented in the coexistence of a variety of forms of educational practices and the expansion of the functions of the university. This contributes to the manifestation of its stability in the changing world.
