Learning for a New Era

In an increasingly global and networked world, Americans will need new skills and knowledge to succeed. We have entered a time when personalized and lifelong learning are essential if individuals are to develop skills best suited to their talents, best aligned with market needs, and best able to allow them to adapt in a rapidly changing economy. Are we on the verge of a breakdown of the traditional relationship between educational attainment and economic advancement? This panel will explore how innovations in learning and training can better prepare everyone to succeed in a workforce that is continually evolving.  Presented by: Markle Economic Future Initiative
