Higher education's ability to prepare students to compete in the 21st century workplace faces increasing scrutiny. Existing and ingrained structures of higher education, particularly in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, are not set up to provide the skill development in three key areas necessary for student success in the knowledge economy: communication, teamwork and divergent thinking, a new book published by Purdue University Press suggests.
