Abstract

Universities are currently experiencing a general crisis in aligning their research functions and curricula with current job requirements and trends. Higher education institutions (HEIs) are no longer seen as the only source of information. Students demand to develop their competencies for real-world problems while moving away from theoretical knowledge. Changes in technology, social life and economics call for a change of traditional teaching and research methods.
