Bridging the Skills Gap Webinar


Description: Learners increasingly are seeking faster alternatives to traditional degrees. They are turning to non-traditional programs, which are well-positioned in the market to provide localized upskilling for opportunities that expand their skill sets through degree, certificate, and credential programs.

Join Dean, Lynda Wilson, and Chris Hanson, VP, University Partnerships, Everspring, for a discussion on how short courses can address the evolving needs of your community.

During this webinar, we will discuss:

  • How to identify a portfolio of programs that will help enhance your reputation and meet the needs of your community
  • How to engage new student audiences through short courses, certificate and credential programs
  • How to think through a positive student experience that leads them to recommend the program, from registration to course completion, to make the process seamless for students—and ensure retention through to program completion
