Peter Stokes Presents at NEBHE Talent 4.0
On Oct. 17, 2016, the New England Board of Higher Education hosted the conference Talent 4.0: How Employable Are New England's College Graduates and What Can Higher Education Do About It? This was an opportunity for leaders in higher education to explore the topic of education and employability. Over the years, employers in New England have claimed a lack of qualified candidates for careers in healthcare, advanced manufacturing and information technology -- putting much of the blame on local college models.
Huron's Peter Stokes presented at the session Career Now: The Future of Experiential and Work-Integrated Learning. Stokes discussed innovative models for integrating study and work. Reactions from Lynn Pasquerella, president of the American Association of Colleges and Universities, and Paul J. Stonely, CEO of the World Association for Cooperative & Work-Integrated Education, were moderated by Philip DiSalvio, dean of the College of Advancing and Professional Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston.Contact Us
