In the article “Employers Are Changing How They View Training. Here are Education Trends They See Coming” by Jeffrey R. Young, Young points out that “Many of the largest employers in the country are changing how they approach offering training and education benefits to their employees.”
Several possible education trends discussed in the article are:
Employees will demand learning directly tied to jobs
Data will play a larger role
Companies will ditch the classroom model in favor of a mobile education approach
Degrees will become shorter and stackable
Skills will become king
If this is the direction the workforce moves, it will be interesting to see how teaching and learning will change in the classroom.
