“Future-Proofing” Learning and Assessment
Much about what lies ahead cannot yet be known, of course. But we can be sure that the future of work will require a potent blend of technical skills, professional skills, and human literacies. And while formal degrees and credentials will continue to be important, we believe that hiring decisions will increasingly focus on the demonstration of skills and competencies, regardless of how and where they were developed. This means that assessment will need to move beyond testing and become as robust, engaging, and authentic as the best learning experiences.
EXPERTISE IN COMPETENCY-BASED EDUCATION
Competency-based education (CBE) and learning models are transforming higher education, workforce training, and corporate learning. With valid assessment, they provide measurable and demonstrable evidence of learning. Competency models are based on core employability skills in our rapidly changing economy and cover a broad range of human, technical, and professional skills.
TRANSFORMATIVE LEARNING SOLUTIONS
Success in the rapidly evolving workplace demands individuals with strong digital as well as human skills. But even more important is the capacity to learn and adapt. We work with employers and educational providers to create what the World Economic Forum calls “a new learning and working ecosystem-a shared vision for talent.”
NAVIGATING COMPLEX BUSINESS CHALLENGES
Business leaders sometimes believe they have to choose between present growth or future opportunities. Our approach is “both and”: we help businesses develop strategies that ensure healthy results day as well as a workforce that can meet the demands of tomorrow.
Transforming Learning. Transforming Lives.
We develop and deliver transformative learning solutions, bringing exceptional expertise in competency-based education, project-based learning and authentic assessment. Our method is based on “backwards design” informed by employers and embedded in analysis of labor market data. We also work with our partners on strategic planning, market positioning and research, accreditation reviews, and product management.
