My partner Melanie likes to invoke the provocation that the next generation might see the end of higher education as we know it. The emergent alternative is self-directed learning portfolios that can demonstrate more self-efficacy, without the debilitating debt, than traditional degrees.
It’s a call for a whole new genre of support. Coaches who can help people curate their own portfolios to include the growing plethora of free and affordable certified online courses, priceless internships, and amazing mentoring that together equal multi-disciplinary, relevant, and authentic preparation that would make any employer more delighted than they are today.
A brilliant proposition.
