The World Economic Forum projects 40% of core skills will change for workers set to remain in their roles by 2025. Meanwhile, more and more companies are moving to a skills-first hiring model, with some removing degree requirements altogether. To address student needs amid this dynamic work environment, higher ed will need to rethink how it is preparing them to compete in the workforce. Join Shravan Goli, Chief Product Officer at Coursera, to learn how colleges and universities can use data insights, hands-on learning, and AI-powered tools to help students develop the right skills to propel their careers. Through real world examples and innovations, Goli will examine how a tech-driven approach can enable higher ed institutions of all sizes to scale high-quality, career-focused learning programs.
