We need to prepare for jobs that don’t even exist yet. This book offers readers a fascinating glimpse into a near-future where careers last 100 years, and education lasts a lifetime. It makes the case that learners of the future are going to repeatedly seek out educational opportunities throughout the course of their working lives ― which will no longer have a beginning, middle, and end. Long Life Learning focuses on the disruptive and burgeoning innovations that are laying the foundation for a new learning model that includes clear navigation, wraparound and funding supports, targeted education, and clear connections to more transparent hiring processes.
