The educational system is undergoing radical pressure to change. The increased need for individuals to learn and adapt has resulted in a huge demand for higher education. However, higher educational institutes are failing to keep pace with learner and societal needs. Firstly, the skills profile required for individuals to succeed is changing; there is a change in emphasis from discipline-specific to transversal skills due to the dynamic labor market. Secondly, the learner profile has changed with individuals from diverse backgrounds, cultures, abilities, and contexts, and catering for such a diverse range of students is challenging. Technology is a key enabler in providing HEIs with the means to address such issues. This chapter explores a conceptual model which integrates pedagogical approaches such as multiple intelligence theory, learning styles, competency-based education with digital technologies to offer a solution to some of the concerns facing higher education in the 21st century.
