Announcing & Inviting you to The Mindset Speaker Series – Conversations on the Public Recognition of Student Learning

We’re excited to announce The Mindset Speaker Series – conversations on the public recognition of student learning.

In this speaker series, you will hear from leaders in research, innovation, deployment, and technology who will cover three topics we recognize as foundational to informing a holistic and career-ready ecosystem – including:

– employer partnerships with campuses and students,
– change management on your campus, and,
– turning theory into effective practice.
