The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and NimblyWise present:
Wednesday, February 20, 1:00 – 2:00pm EST
Do students need to develop better foundational skills? How can data and assessment drive skill development?
Join NimblyWise’s Vice President of Partnerships, Dr. Brent Keltner, and Chief of Staff, Sara Ortins, as they discuss the growing need for foundational skills development to prepare students for the world of work. Explore how these skills are developed and ultimately affect students’ skills narratives and their employability. Identify new strategies and technologies to bolster this skill set in students who engage with your career services office and look at examples of other institutions and how they have addressed this deficiency.
Following this program, you will be able to:
- Understand the root causes of foundational skills deficiency and the implications for student employability
- Develop a strategy for teaching and measuring critical thinking, communication, cultural awareness, and other foundational skills
- Analyze assessment data collected and identify how it is used to align faculty, student, and career center needs
