Wednesday, November 14, 2018
12:00 PM – 1:45 PM
The role adult education plays in guiding students on an educational and career pathway is complex and ever-changing. The world of work continues to evolve as we continue to build our knowledge, curriculum, and partnerships to respond to labor market projections, high-demand occupations, and students’ individual skills, interests, and goals. Technological innovations will make some jobs obsolete, some of which will be replaced by new job titles, roles, and skill demands. Panelists representing an array of industry sectors will discuss the challenges and opportunities to proactively participate in the strategic workforce planning needed to carve out responsive training models leading to viable career opportunities for adult learners.
