Commentary by Stephen Downes

Here are the "six continuing education trends that can help to close Canada's training gap," according to the Dean of the Change School, Marie Bountrogianni (quoted):

  • continuing education can provide soft skills that are in-demand and transferable
  • working adults can choose the course or program that is best suited to their needs
  • teach employees entrepreneurial behaviour, strategy, and opportunity identification
  • better linkages between employers and post-secondary institutions, and among post-secondary institutions
  • employees (who) understand and efficiently act upon the insights that data can provide
  • the experience and expertise older adults bring to their encore careers
