Building a 21st Century Workforce: Workshop Results

In November, USU hosted a facilitated workshop to explore the challenges and opportunities to help make students more workforce ready.  The workshop included a circuit— five different areas where groups of participants visit topic experts, who engaged in deep discussions around knowledge boards, which were drawn by graphic artists from the powerpoints the experts didn’t use. They also offer an interesting way to share what we learned at the workshop. Here they are, you can travel your own circuit.
