Building Blocks of Student Employability

About this Webinar:

About this webinar: Why flexible, accessible, transferable and relevant continued learning and skill development are crucial to meeting the constantly and quickly evolving skills demanded by employers. 

Join us on Wednesday, October 27 at 11AM EST for a live webinar

The path to lifelong employability is not a straight line. The “must-have” skills demanded by employers are constantly—and quickly—evolving. Whether one is a seasoned professional or a recent graduate, continued learning and skill development are paramount. To meet these demands, learning opportunities must be flexible, accessible, transferable, and relevant. How can any university keep pace?

Join our panel of experts from IBM, Credly, and edX as they discuss:

  • How stackable credentials lead to job readiness and more opportunities across society
  • Badging, certifications, and other avenues for students to gain and signify that they hold the critical skills employers need
  • Efforts to create more widespread and universal recognition of these new approaches
