The New ABC’s of Learning for the Future to Work

2020-03-25


Training and higher ed are under pressure to better meet fast-changing needs. Now, the coronavirus poses a new, unexpected and unprecedented challenge to all those involved in education.

With the coronavirus and ensuing lockdown, rethinking education is no longer a nice-to-have but a must-do. Schools and universities are shuttered. Exams are canceled. Layoffs of professors and teachers will inevitably follow.

At this moment of extreme peril, educators and administrators at every scholastic level –and those responsible for training employees in the wider workforce – must urgently reassess their existing practices and protocols. They need to reimagine how to operate in a world of remote presence, social distancing and considerable economic stress.

While businesses and higher education institutions agree on the importance of preparing workers and students to work alongside emerging digital technologies, according to our recent study, they’ve so far been slow to make that shift.

The time to wait is over. We’ve created a future of learning equation to define the changes needed: predictive approaches to skills identification, agile curriculum change, digitally driven modes of delivery, and support for self-learning — all done at the fastest speed possible.

See our infographic to learn more about the learning model changes currently underway, as well as our insights into what’s needed — now — to prepare tomorrow’s workforce.
