This session examines the emerging technology-driven expansion of traditional adult education programming beyond today’s “hot jobs.” We will explore an approach to expand training for traditional user applications and employment:
- To include evolving tech industries and opportunities
- To push digital equity and inclusion boundaries and
- To upskill and reskill our adult learners as the designers and innovators of the next tech generation.
