The rapid growth and obsolescence of knowledge cause uncertainty for university actors, such as students, teachers, administrative staff, and technology vendors. They must find new ways of dealing with hindering assumptions, and behaviors toward learning and teaching. To overcome these and achieve educational goals, it is essential to question ineffective ways of teaching and learning, adopt new education processes, and discard inadequate beliefs and procedures. This process is known as unlearning. In this position paper, we explore the potential of unlearning for mitigating educational challenges through unlearning. From a socio-technical perspective, we highlight the value of unlearning as a tool for tackling different challenges in university contexts. Finally, we identify central problem spaces stimulating further discussions.
