ABSTRACT

This paper is aimed at finding out a new direction of liberal arts education at universities and the concrete programs associated with it in the era of the Forth Industrial Revolution. The core area of the change that the Forth Industrial Revolution pushes forward is a platform. A platform itself, as a cooperative model, replaces the old isolated modes of production. Corporations look out for the talents equipped with cooperative competence. Creativity is also newly understood on the basis of cooperation, and education that can cultivate this collaborative creativity is demanded in this era. A new orientation of this education is cooperation, not competition. Universities should also provide collaborative education and are urged to establish the educational space where various expertises can be converged. At this time, liberal arts education should function as a platform for expanding knowledge that could incorporate various contents of professional knowledge, and prepare for an educational plan utilizing Big Question which can naturally induce such cooperation.
