Video from the recent book launch of “Beyond the Skills Gap: Preparing College Students for Life and Work,” hosted by the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE), is now available on the WISCAPE YouTube channel.
The event featured author Matthew Hora, along with two educators who's work is discussed in the book –- Janet Batzli from UW-Madison and Peter Dettmer from Madison College –- and focused on approaches to teaching and learning in light of the complex challenges facing society and the labor market in the 21st century.
In addition, Hora advanced policy recommendations that center on systemic reforms to public higher education and the business community and collectively address student, employer, and societal needs.
Hora also gave recognition to the book's co-authors, Ross Benbow and Amanda Oleson.
The event was cosponsored by The Network’s Practical Wisdom Series and the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER).
