Course Description:

In this course, participants will gain insight into the 21st Century skills and their relevance to education today.  Shifts in the world including the proliferation of technological resources and information will be highlighted, as well as the skills students today will be expected to have in the workforce will be explored.  While there are some unknowns about what tomorrow’s work will require, we know that significant shifts from past educational practices will be critical.
