#59 | The Future of Work and Learning with Michelle Weise, PhD | Author of Long Life Learning

What does the future of work and learning look like?What do you need to know to prepare?According to Dr. Michelle Weise, “for the future of work, we are all going to have to be very skilled problem solvers and system thinkers” and “that really does require a different approach on the part of higher-ed institutions in cultivating those kinds of learners.” Michelle’s work focuses on the bottom 25% of income earners and what needs to change to help them to overcome barriers that prevent them from achieving academic and career success. One of the largest barriers Michelle describes is solving for time and lack of funds.We talk about the role of A.I's role: Helping to bridge the gap for employers to understand if a potential employee has the skill set they need.  Helping employees to feel confident that the education or training that they are pursuing will lead to work. Right now, we are teaching in silos. Things will need to become more interdisciplinary. Michelle provides examples of organizations that are doing it well.Refer this podcast to: Anyone struggling to move forward in their career Anyone needing free resources to up-skill Higher Ed | Career Planners/Counselors/Academic Advisors College Planners/Counselors Employers Join Our Podcast Email List!   Follow Our Podcast:Website: Listen To Our Podcast HereYouTube Channel   Twitter   LinkedIn  Facebook   InstagramAll Things College and CareerMeg's LinkedIn   Bobbie's LinkedInACADEMIC a CAREER ADVISING SERVICES:Visit Website:  Academic and Career Advising ServicesSchedule an Appointment with Academic a Career Advising ServicesEmail Meg:  meg@academicandcareeradvisingservices.comMusic Production by Lena Ozea:  Lena Ozea Sound CloudTechnical Production:  Richard BarnettIntroduction by Patricia Walsh SHOW NOTES:Buy Michelle’s Book on Amazon:  Long Life Learning:  Preparing for Jobs that Don't Even Exist YetFollow Michelle on Twitter:  @rwmichelleFollow Michelle on LinkedIn:  https://www.linkedin.com/in/rwmichelle/Visit Michelle’s Website:  https://www.riseanddesign.io/Michelle collaborated with Clayton M.
