The role and place of the academic is changing – and it’s a good thing ?

I became an academic to make a difference not build a career, says Alex Hope – flexibility of employment is the future

GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC‘s insight:

Academic ‘career’ – “I suspect that the academic of the future will not be tied to an institution but be a thought leader, communicator and teacher undertaking a range of activities on a freelance/contract basis – and that the world will be a better place for it.”
