Shifting economic and societal trends have reinvented the role of higher education into a resource for students looking for accelerated pathways into the workplace and employers looking for defined skill-sets to fill jobs that were once accessible to high school graduates. This session will be facilitated by a panel of leaders from North Texas community colleges discussing special topics associated with workforce education trends such as industry partnerships, marketable skills alignment, prior learning assessment and more.
