Has your business model changed? Should it? Even if the 3-year undergraduate course catering for 18–23-year-olds endures, some organisations will see a change in their student base. Do we have the right staff and facilities to deliver to a multi-generational student body? Changing a business model has consequences far beyond the immediately obvious, which is why assessment of impact is supposed to be thorough – whose responsibility is it to do this? The 24/7 university campus is not a new concept: with students beaming in from Beijing, students needing support at all hours, and lectures taking place in ways both in person and virtually, how ready are we in matching and shaping a 24/7 expectation? Is this where we are heading? How does the “new world of work” fit in?
