About the Webconference
As technology reshapes industries and the economy prepares for a mass retirement of Baby Boomers, anticipating the training deficits of the future—not just responding to current employer needs—is crucial to sustaining enrollments. In this series, we explore the technological, economic, and demographic trends shaping the next decade’s workforce, highlighting blossoming industries that allow community colleges to reach new student populations and plant a flag early in emerging hot fields and disciplines.
This fall, we'll be re-hosting the highlights from our spring 2014 webconference series. For young workers facing unemployment, a short-term credential in a high-demand skill could substantially boost lifetime earnings. This third volume in the Industry Futures Series explores opportunities for community colleges to design certificates in social media and mobile application development that appeal to post-baccalaureate students in search of technical skills.
