The exponential growth of technology and artificial intelligence means that the world is rapidly changing. Education is not exempt from this trend. New ways of engaging and teaching are needed. This need has been exacerbated by the arrival of COVID-19, which is stimulating higher education to reevaluate its approach to teaching and learning. This is a conceptual paper that looks at several theories and philosophies that underpin all forms of “learning” especially those theories coming from the systems paradigm which the authors consider is essential for future higher educators. Based on these theories, a new approach to higher education is proposed and an example given of how it could work in practice. The article provides a platform for further discussion and debate to support the strategic vision and direction of travel for higher education.
