State of Skills – Non-Credit Research
11:00 am PT | Wednesday, April 21, 2021
This session will begin by measuring demand for, and estimating future success of, Non-Credit higher education opportunities in Oregon. Short-term learning, stackable credentials and non-credit offerings are becoming the way of the future. In this session, we’ll learn how to use Labor Insight to understand local employer needs and pain points, and identify skill-specific opportunities that in-demand, growing, pay a decent salary and could be considered options for non-credit opportunities.
Case Study Example: Rochester Institution of Technology
Purposeful Program Planning
11:00 am PT | Thursday, May 6
In this session, we’ll look closer at for-credit programs and use Buring Glass’s framework to effectively evaluate program potential to make informed go-to-market decisions. We’ll demonstrate how Burning Glass provides the Oregon CC system with current, accurate, and detailed labor market data to pinpoint the exact skills in demand or to identify a new trend while analyzing program competition both in Oregon and in surrounding states.
Case Study Example: Dallas County Community College District
After the Storm
11:00 am PT | Wednesday, May 19
Get insight into Burning Glass’ database of job postings to get a handle on the changing nature of the Oregon job market, and how community colleges can prepare their graduates for a successful career in a post-pandemic labor market.
In this final session, we’ll look to the future and talk through examples of how Oregon Community Colleges can prepare for the five “readiness” economies and equip learners with the skills and experiences that those economies will require.
