Introduction

Some key words underlying the 4th Industrial Revolutions

(4IR): Convergence, Uncertainty, Hyper-connectedness,

etc.

Issue: The higher education in the traditional sense seems

to face a problem in dealing with this new paradigm.

Technological revolution does not simply demand adopting technology for more effective teaching and

learning, but seems to demand structural innovation in

the higher education.

Question: How can these key concepts can be embodied

in the higher education for the era of technological

revolution?

Goal: To present a case, with Y’sU (pronounced “Wise U”),

a new brand name of Youngsan University in Korea, where

the undergraduate programs are designed to incorporate the core features of the 4 th Industrial Revolution, and share the knowledge and discuss some educational issues

in terms of the academic structure and contents:

A Case at Y’sU

The outcomes that Y’sU intend to draw in its educational

reformation include convergence and enhancing potentials

with base technology.

Structural change:

Lower down the boundaries of majors:

Required credits for a major: 36 units

Program-restructuring

Y’sU

- requires all students to learn software (16 units),

- offers 4 technological areas as academic bases in line with the new technological revolution (i.e., virtual reality, artificial intelligence, big data, IoT).

-

These four base skills

- combine selectively with 36 academic units in human/social sciences, culture and art, hotel & tourism management, and health.

- produce another set of converged academic units.

The key concepts embedded in the 4 th Industrial Revolution can be derived from this flexible approach.

Globalization & Global compatibility of education

Technology-based education is likely to enhance

global compatibility in higher education, reducing local peculiarity.

The global networks will be more effectively utilized

both on- and off-line education.
