Description

Beyond the Skills Gap Preparing College Students for Life and Work

Dec. 9, 2016 12-1:30pm 159 EDUCATION BLDG

wiscape.wisc.edu WISCAPE BOOK LAUNCH

A discussion with author Matthew Hora and educators Janet Batzli and Peter Dettmer

The idea of a “skills gap” has led to bipartisan policymaking that de-emphasizes the liberal arts in favor of more “market-ready” technical programming and alternative credentialing for students. Unfortunately, as Matthew Hora and co-authors Ross Benbow and Amanda Oleson demonstrate in their groundbreaking book, Beyond the Skills Gap, this approach is deeply flawed. Join Hora, along with two educators featured in the book — Janet Batzli of UW–Madison and Peter Dettmer of Madison College — as they discuss their own approaches to teaching and learning in light of the complex challenges facing society and the labor market in the early 21st century.
