There is much discussion of the perceived "skills-gap" in the postsecondary sector. What can be done to adjust the postsecondary experience so that students graduate with not only a knowledge base, but also the skills needed in today's workplaces?
One of the attempts to address this issue is the Ontario government's 2017
Career Kick-Start Strategy which includes providing blanket access for all publicly funded colleges and universities in Ontario to the online self-service training and skill-development resources on Lynda.com until September 2020.
HEQCO is working with eCampusOntario to assess how students feel about the skills they are gaining from their postsecondary experience, where they feel they could improve and how well the Lynda.com initiative is working to help students gain the skills needed to succeed in the workplace.
HEQCO's work will be based on answering the following questions:
