In this introduction we leverage efforts of three professionals involved in the practice and use of MoT education. These professionals each discuss MoT from different perspectives. One is primarily interested in MoT pedagogy from a practitioner point of view. Another is a progenitor of the field. The third is an emergent MoT professor. The fourth and fifth utilize their efforts to focus on the importance of MoT education, and how MoT programs, courses and course materials can be presented to managers and technical professionals using both traditional and emergent methods. 21st century managers and students are either participating in or entering into a marketplace where the effective Management of Technology is key both to their professional development and to the effectiveness of large, small and medium enterprises, entrepreneurial activities, NGO operations, government policies and regional development. The Special Issue editors then provide a view of how the authors incorporated in this Special Issue provide the basis for 21st century MoT pedagogy for lifelong learners.
