Speaker: , Manager of Market Research, The Learning House, Inc.

For today’s student, the path to the workforce is no longer straightforward. Over the past five years, MOOCs, bootcamps, and badges have emerged as increasingly disruptive forces. Competency-based models have gained acceptance among students and employers alike, and students are looking to take advantage of these lower-cost alternatives to the traditional college degree. In this presentation, Andrew Magda, Manager of Market Research, The Learning House, Inc., will describe how the college degree rose to prominence over the course of the last century, and how alternative credentials are gaining traction in this century. The session will be a guided discussion. Participants will respond to questions about sections of the learning map in small groups based on info from their institution.
