Scalable Alignment of Programs to Workforce Skills

Session Overview

This video was part of the July 2021 REMOTE: The Connected Faculty Summit

One of the biggest trends in Higher Education is the demand for colleges and universities to adapt their programs to better align with workforce-relevant skills. Fortunately, there are standards and tools that can help with the creation and maintenance of a skills-based curriculum. In this session, we explore the fundamentals of skills alignment, the IMS CASE specification, and the tools and services LearningMate has developed leveraging CASE interoperability standards to enable alignment of competencies and skills.
