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 D2L Modules to help teach and assess these important skills. We will be visiting Metropolitan State University on Tuesday January 14 to discuss and demonstrate the Modules, and help faculty understand how to use them in their courses. We will also be discussing our digital badging / micro-credentialing pilot, which Metropolitan State is participating in this spring.
