Webinar: Preparing Students for the Workforce

Digital disruptions mean new categories of jobs will emerge, and those jobs will require new skillsets. How can colleges and universities ensure they outfit students with the skills and experience they require for the new world of work?

Join us September 26 at 11 am PT/ 2 pm ET as we examine how technology tools that allow students to work alongside professionals — both virtually and physically — can enable students to graduate more prepared for high-demand fields. Our featured speakers will explore:

  • How educational organizations can integrate advanced, secure, effective AV and collaboration solutions to connect students to the resources and technologies they need to prepare for successful careers.
  • Top tools for workplace readiness, such as interactive displays and huddle rooms, virtual reality, augmented reality and simulation, and how some top universities are using them.
  • How universities can leverage industry collaborations to get the tech tools they need.

How Higher Ed and Private Business Can Work for Students

When higher education schools and private businesses work together, they can help students learn the skills they need to be successful as they move into the full-time workforce.  To help you understand what makes such partnerships work, AVI-SPL has created a page called “Strategies for Improving Student Success When They Join the Workforce.”

The first section of the page looks at the benefits of public-private partnerships that help train high-school students, college students, and displaced workers so they are prepared for their chosen career. It also includes a Q&A with Tracie Bryant-Cravens, AVI-SPL VP of Sales for State/Local Government & Education. Tracie explains why these partnerships between higher education and private organizations result in improved education and career opportunities.
