Friday, October 16, 2020, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT
The New York Academy of Sciences
The current pandemic has reignited the conversation about the value of a traditional four-year college. With in-person learning becoming limited and remote learning becoming more accessible, alternative pathways for education and training have become a reality. In this event our panelists will consider how higher education might evolve, how other organizations are helping students transition to the workforce with skills aligned more directly with industry needs, and the potential trade-offs.
During this webinar, you’ll hear from a panel of thought leaders on the following topics:
- How traditional higher education has fared in bridging skills gaps?
- Discussion of how education might evolve to increase workforce success
- What strategies are being implemented to help young professionals grow in their careers?
- What does the future of education look like from the perspective of in-person and remote learning for educators and students?
