Does higher education need a new model for the lifelong learner?

Reported by Education Dive, with the pace of change faster than it’s ever been, and with employees needing to continually upskill over the course of their careers, does a 2-, 4-, or 7-year degree program make sense anymore?

Or do institutions need to start developing new models for what that post-degree educational path looks like, whether it’s nano-credentials, micro-credentials, or more?


The takeaway? Employers need upskilled employees, so how can we do a better job bridging this gap between academia and industry and better servicing the lifelong learner?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
