HOW UNIVERSITIES ARE RETHINKING THEIR LEARNING MODELS TO BETTER PREPARE STUDENTS FOR THE SKILLS REQUIRED FOR SUCCESS IN TODAY'S WORK ENVIRONMENT

The urgency to prepare students with twenty-first century skills puts students, educators and employers in a challenging position.  Qualifications that may have stood out on a resume or transcript at the start of a college career may be in less demand by the time a student graduates. 

What's needed, as higher education institutions struggle to keep their curricula current, is a new way of thinking about the essential skills required to prepare students for today's job market.  The question is, what are those skills?  The answers vary quite a bit and some may surprise you!

In this brief, learn about:

  • How Charles Fadel, author of Four-Dimensional Education: The Competencies Learners Need to Succeed defines the most critical twenty-first century skills students need to be successful.
  • What the Executive MBA Council sees as the most critical twenty-first century skills business graduates should have upon graduation from business school.
  • How Kristine Bartanen, academic VP at the University of Puget Sound helps students develop their twenty-first century communication and leadership skills by  civic issues such as homelessness and environmental challenges.
