The challenge of the skills gap continues to be a priority for higher education and employers alike. Join WCET as we bring together a panel of thought leaders from George Mason University, the Office of Workforce Development for the State of Missouri, and Wiley Education Services to discuss the current state of the skills gap, the paramount role education plays in closing it, and the value partnerships bring as we work toward closing it together.
WCET partnered with the National Research Center for Distance Education and Technological Advancements (DETA) to conduct a review equity-focused research in digital learning. Join us for a WCET and SAN member-only webcast for an overview of the report's findings.
Open educational resources – freely accessible and openly licensed text, media, and other digital assets that are useful for teaching, learning, and assessing as well as for research purposes – have made education more achievable and equitable for millions of students worldwide.

As we look ahead to a post-pandemic world where digital education will be even more prevalent, what opportunities did the pandemic provide, and what lessons have we learned? How can we ensure high-quality online learning that improves access and attainment, and how do we ensure students, staff, and professors are equipped to thrive?
The boundaries of learning and earning are intersecting in increasingly complex ways. The “traditional” approach – prescriptive pathways of degree attainment, followed by a long career – can no longer be the norm in a dynamic and rapidly changing social and economic landscape. Many of the jobs degree-seeking students will have do not even exist – and the current model too often locks out the students who stand to gain the most from higher education’s democratic promise.
State leaders, postsecondary education institutions, and education leaders are working across state lines to promote the adoption of open educational resources (OER) to help millions of students access high-quality learning materials that are free to use, customize, and share.
