Chicago area learning leaders heard about Bellevue University's groundbreaking learning model that integrates important workplace skills with critical subject matter knowledge. The presentation was made by Mike Echols, Ph.D., Executive Vice President of Bellevue University's Strategic Initiatives division and the Human Capital Lab™.
The new model was created in response to corporate learning leaders saying there's a distinct gap in abilities between college-prepared graduates and workplace readiness. The gap is in important work skills like critical decision-making, problem solving, communication, and collaboration. These "power skills" are integrated into Bellevue University corporate learning programs.
