Abstract
Post-pandemic, the Higher Education sector at large is facing unprecedented challenges. Universities need to rethink how they deliver education, how they conduct research, and how they position themselves to stay competitive in a vastly changing global marketplace. In this context, strategic thinkers focus on new opportunities to explore. These include the creation of “New Global Universities”, the delivery of “Education ”, and the advancement and provision of “Personalized Learning” as key pillars. Advancing Personalized Learning is one of the fourteen NAE Grand Challenges for Engineering. Within the Systems Realization Community we hypothesize that all grand challenges can be modelled as cyber-physical social systems. Accordingly, I will connect the dots between the three identified pillars to stimulate new ideas for research aimed at advancing personalized learning in the context of Education
