Knowledge, Learning, Community

The question being asked here (14 page PDF) is interesting. It has three parts: how much do institutions use workforce trends to identify workplace skills, how much are these trends being sued to design learning experiences, and how well are students taught to communicate their proficiency in these skills. It should be noted that each question builds on the previous, creating an assumption that educators should identify, value and propagate these workplace skills. The data collected, though, is minuscule, "interview data gathered from 18 academic leaders, program directors, and faculty." No idea how they were selected. The results indicate "the existence of a workforce skills communication gap" but they could indicate life on Mars and be just as reliable. There's also a Playbook (21 page PDF) which I suspect was the main deliverable of the project.
