The New Learning Economy
With entire occupations and industries expanding and contracting at an ever-quickening pace, the skills essential for keeping up in almost any job are rapidly increasing. In the U.S. alone, 37 percent of the top 20 skills considered necessary for the average job have changed since 2016.

As a result, employers are demanding more from traditional colleges and universities just as a new set of learning providers are stepping up to provide in-demand training and credentials. This “New Learning Economy” is appearing in industry-recognized certificates, short-term certificate programs, and it’s found online with providers outside the traditional system as well as showing up at workplaces as employers increasingly promise education benefits as part of the job.

This virtual forum will outline strategies for institutions to embrace the move toward continual education as an opportunity to reach different segments of learners, establish alternative business models, and diversify their revenue streams.

During this webcast, we will examine:

✅ How to engage the faculty in decision-making

✅ Ways to align offerings with learner and labor-market demand

✅ Innovations in assessment and credentialing
