UCW releases white paper on needs of BC technology community

University Canada West has released a new white paper on what technology companies need from universities to better address the talent shortage. The paper highlights five interrelated opportunities for universities: building technical, strategic, and humanistic skills; bringing academia and industry together; reimagining student learning and assessment; creating upskilling and reskilling solutions; and changing how British Columbia is perceived. “Universities share a collective responsibility to understand what industry needs to help the economy grow, and as importantly, to prepare students to meet those needs,” said UCW Interim President Sheldon Levy. “As we reimagine the post-COVID economy, we must work together with industry to better prepare the tech workforce of the future.” News Wire| Report| Report (PDF) Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
