“We are currently preparing students for jobs and technologies that don’t yet exist… to solve problems that we don’t even know are problems yet.” — Richard Riley, former U.S. secretary of education
Corporate learning leaders have inherited one of the most difficult challenges of a changing world: Preparing a workforce for jobs that don’t yet exist. This webinar explores the vital skills and learning required to compete in the 21st century.
Charles Fadel, global lead for education at Cisco Systems and co-author of 21st Century Skills: Learning for Life in Our Times, and Michael E. Echols, Ph.D., executive vice president of Bellevue University and executive director of the university’s Human Capital Lab, bring their unique and complementary perspectives to what has been called the “most important conversation of our times.”

      “The authors have done nothing less than provide a bold framework for designing a 21st century approach to education, an approach aimed at preparing all of our children to successfully meet the challenges of this brave, new world.”
      Paul Reville, Secretary of Education,
      Commonwealth of Massachusetts;
      former director of the Education Policy and Management Program,
      Harvard Graduate School of Education
      “It’s about time that we have such an accessible and wise book about the 21st century skills that so many companies, policymakers, and educators are talking about”

      Education and the Learning Sciences,
      Stanford University

    • 39. Employers Ask for Degrees…
      Opportunity mostly for four-year higher education
      Frustrated by high turnover and poor matches to jobs
       Degree isn’t an accurate reflection of what people can really do.
      Degree long ago
      Degree unconnected to job (sales?)
      Degree from unrecognizable institution
      2 year, some/no degree
    • 40. …But What They Need are Skills.
      People who have skills (or can get skills) but have the “wrong”/no degree are invisible
      It takes a great deal of time & money to get a college degree, many do not have that luxury.
      What would happen if we made a “skills ecology” rather than a “degree ecology” around jobs?
    • 41. FAQ: Why Hasn’t Something Like This Happened Already?
      Pieces of it have happened already. What is missing is the whole SYSTEM:
      Skills tests are becoming more common.
      Employer buy-in and use of skills scores in hiring is currently rare – but has tremendous ROI when it does happen.
      No consciously-designed marketplace yet exists for employers, employees, and learning providers
    • 42. The Nation
      The Challenge:
      - 60% of all jobs in 2018 will require a degree
      - 71% of jobs with growth will require post secondary credentials
      The Reality:
      7 years to fill 22.8 percentage points gap
    • 43. The Individual
      Main population: Working adults
      38 million with some credit
      75% of current students “non-traditional”
      means
      Financially independent
      Attend part time
      Delayed enrollment (not traditional high school to college)
      Working full time
      Have dependents
      More mobile
    • 44. The Individual
      Reasons individuals get education
      • 20% of total for personal development
      • 45. 80% for career outcome
      What would support them?
      41% of surveyed workers are reluctant to invest the time because they are unsure about what their jobs will require in the future.
    • 46. Missing in Action – The Employer
      Failure of senior leadership to tell employees what would be valuable to invest into
      $ – Sixteen billion in tuition assistance not strategically deployed
      – HR benefit – administered by supervisor through “benign neglect”
      – Little or no link to talent management
    • 47. Missing in Action – The Employer
      Most important for Gen X males & females
      • Positive relationship with supervisor
      • 48. Positive relationship with co-workers
      • 49. Interesting work
      • 50. Opportunities for learning
      (The NeXt Revolution: Shelton and Shelton)
    • 51. Non-Financial U.S. Corporations
      $2 TRILLION in cash on balance sheets
      means
      Availability of resources is NOT the issue
    • 52. Employers Who “Get it”:
      Education as a Talent Strategy
      Co-designed curriculum
      Employee communication strategy
      Measured financial impact
      The Home Depot
      Retail sales management
      Convergys
      Call center operations management
      SunTrust
      Retail banking leadership
      Verizon Wireless
      Retail sales management
      Call center operations management
    • 53. Conclusions
      Significant national challenge to reach goals
      Individuals motivated and ready to act
      Missing key is our employers
      They need a strategy
      &
      A responsive, supportive university partner
