Academic Webinar Series – Career Readiness and Digital Badging

Academic Webinar Series – Career Readiness and Digital Badging

The Minnesota State IT Center of Excellence has heard from numerous employers that graduates must possess both technical skills and “career readiness” skills to be successful in their jobs.

Research continues to show that employers are sometimes underwhelmed by students’ career readiness, often lacking critical skills such as:

Oral and Written Communications
Initiative and Leadership
Collaboration and Teamwork

In response, the ITCOE has recently created three new Modules to help our faculty, built 100% in Desire2Learn (D2L), focused on teaching and assessing these important skills.

Join us as Chad Eckes, Founder and Principal of cSquaredE and COE Consultant, discusses why students should want to take Career Readiness Courses.

Chad will also give us an overview of the Digital Badging Initiative that is happening at a number of Colleges and Universities around the State of Minnesota! Come and find out how YOU can get involved.
