Overview

We live and work in a Technology-centric, economic and social changing world. Organizations are becoming more demanding in requesting additional skills beyond specialization from their employees in order to come up with solutions to complex issues. As today’s future graduate technologists are already involved with the demands of this changing Knowledge Age, they need to further develop their knowledge, skills and competencies in order to succeed in their future careers. Unfortunately, these skills are not included in many Higher Technology Education learning outcomes. The question is how can these skills be associated with the educational standards and be effectively integrated in the teaching and learning process. This special session aims to address practices that will help educators and training professionals to equip students with new skills in order to meet the needs of today’ s demanding workplace.
