Title: What does College Prepare Students For?: Employer Demand and Online Credentials
Higher education is in the midst of a transformation driven in part by changes in the world of work and by technology. Online education is continuing to grow and gain acceptance, leading to the emergence of a nascent market for new forms of digital educational credentials. Based on recent analysis and surveys, this session will explore these innovations with special attention to how employers and their hiring practices shape demand for educational credentials and what this means for the future of learning and work.
