Workers have to adapt to constant technological change, and economies can no longer afford to leave them to fend for themselves. This special report from The Economist surveys trends, innovations and opportunities in lifelong learning as of early 2017, including massive open online courses (MOOCs), nanodegrees, credentialing, and more. The bottom line is that employers, education providers, even governments and labor unions will have to pull together to maintain a flexible, tech-savvy workforce. getAbstract recommends this informative, comprehensive report for anyone with a stake in the labor force of the future.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why learning providers and employers need to cooperate in educating workers,
