“The D2L Summit offers an opportunity to gather with other thought leaders and examine strategic solutions to issues facing today’s employers and institutions of higher education”

“The D2L offers an opportunity to gather with other thought leaders and examine strategic solutions to issues facing today’s employers and institutions of higher education,” shares Savron. “University of Phoenix is on the leading edge of skills-based curriculum development, and we know from our most recent Career Optimism Index study that employers and employees are seeking opportunities to bolster skills and retain talent. I am excited to join this panel of leaders to discuss the acquisition of knowledge and skills that are easily showcased and how those skills can help expand opportunities for career growth.”

The panel discussion will focus on the changing workforce and its potential impact on our systems of higher education, including:

  • The rate of technological advancement and its impact on jobs
  • A lifelong approach to career development and building durable skills
  • Empowering learners who will likely have a variety of traditional and non-traditional career choices during their lives

The panel discussion will also examine aspects of the most recent Future of Jobs report by the World Economic Forum, and some of the challenges and opportunities which may arise in the workforce as certain jobs are projected to disappear, and others are projected to emerge over the next five years. The panel discussion is part of the two-day learning event hosted by D2L meant to empower learners with practical and actionable knowledge.

University of Phoenix recently announced that its innovative skills-mapped curriculum, focused on the working adult learner, has culminated in 100 percent of associate, bachelor and master’s degree programs open for new enrollment now being fully skills-mapped.
