What colleges should know about a growing ‘talent strategy’ push by companies
EdSurge - 03/02/2017
A new research center at Northeastern University hopes to help close the gap, by fostering better dialogue between colleges and employers, and helping colleges understand both what employers want and what colleges are already doing. It’s called the Center for the Future of Higher Education and Talent Strategy, and it’s led by Sean Gallagher, who wrote the book on The Future of University Credentials.
“We don’t have a lot of forums and mechanisms to bring the two sides together,” said Gallagher, in an interview this week. “Rather than pointing fingers across the chasm of employers and colleges, we want to create real evidence and information and experiences that bring together employers and higher education.”
