When it comes to disruption in education and the future of work – a topic growing increasingly important for all learning business leaders to be knowledgeable about – few people know more than Michelle Weise.
As senior vice president, workforce strategies of Strada Education Network and chief innovation officer of the Strada Institute for the Future of Work, Michelle is a thought leader and expert in innovation and the connections between higher education and the workforce. And her book, Hire Education: Mastery, Modularization, and the Workforce Revolution, co-authored with Clayton Christensen, describes the disruptive potential of online competency-based education aligned to workforce needs.
In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Jeff talks with Michelle about the future of work and the future of learning. They discuss findings and implications from the recently released Strada report, Robot-Ready: Human+ Skills for the Future of Work as well as the challenges and opportunities we are all facing as we adapt to this rapidly changing learning landscape.
