The 60-Year Degree: Learning without Boundaries (WCET)
In this WCET webcast, we discuss how the boundaries of learning and earning are intersecting in increasingly complex ways. The “traditional” approach – prescriptive pathways of degree attainment, followed by a long career – can no longer be the norm in a dynamic and rapidly changing social and economic landscape. Many of the jobs degree-seeking students will have do not even exist – and the current model too often locks out the students who stand to gain the most from higher education’s democratic promise.
