17 Skills Employees Need Today -- And Tomorrow - Marie Bountrogianni, Huffington Post

Online learning is "the new normal," according to "The Future of Higher Education," a report published by Contact North in November 2015. Most higher education institutions, including The Chang School, offer a mix of in-class and online programs so you can choose the format that works best for you. It's important to note that online learning is particularly well suited to impart many of the skills required by tomorrow's workplaces. Beyond "hard skills" - from learning a language to enhancing analytical abilities - it teaches students how to work on a virtual team. It can provide safe virtual environments to test approaches to problem-solving and overcoming adversity. And, because it attracts learners from across the country and around the world, it's an excellent way to acquire an in-depth appreciation of the strengths of diversity. Furthermore, every year brings innovations that enhance online learning. http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/dr-marie-bountrogianni/17-skills-employers-need_b_8776838.html
