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.
MN State IT Center of Excellence will be at Winona State University to discuss these Modules and other needs!
