Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to submit your research to this Special Issue of Education Sciences, titled Leadership and Management of Education in the Digital and Intelligent Era.

Globally, higher education institutions face many challenges, from changes in the global economic situation, lack of government funding, increased competition in an ‘international’ market, and growth in the demand of student numbers. Arguably, however, the greatest challenge facing education comes from advances in technology, led by increased digitalization and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Digitalization and AI have been reshaping society in recent decades, promoting dramatic changes in human life. Until recently, education has been relatively immune, with education methodologies and institutions largely unchanged in how they operate. This, however, is now changing dramatically as we are on the edge of a disruptive shift that will change education forever. Largely driven by concepts of Industry 4.0, the opportunities that AI and Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality/Extended Reality bring through digital technology that is better able to understand human learning, cognitive development and emotions, means learning design, delivery, assessment, and ultimately leadership and management within education will change.

Although there is much research and practical exploration on future society, future work, future learning, and future education, there is a lack of evidence of innovative practice and models of new leadership and management in education, and how they (can) respond to the challenges and opportunities to support future learning and education through embracing disruptive technologies. This Special Issue aims to advance scientific research in the field of leadership and management of the future of education and to share innovative and validated theories, programs, practices, methods, and projects, developed in the context of disruptive change within higher education. Original research articles and reviews are welcome. Areas of research relating to leadership and management of future education may include (but are not limited to) the following: educational paradigm shift and future education models, leadership envisions, new governance system, new ways of organizing and supporting system, innovative operation/ management system, new technologies to facilitate agile management system, future-oriented learning platform/ecosystem, university transformation and change management for future education.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
