How might we reinvent the talent ecosystem to include the (l)earner perspective? The Lab’s latest design manifesto offers a vision and urgent call to action.
Skills visibility is the next step in the Learner Revolution. It puts (l)earners at the center of the shift to skills. Do we understand this opportunity? Do we see the potential? Are we mitigating the risks? This paper attempts to organize that thinking as more than the sum of the interesting parts that are emerging. We attempt to organize it into a new talent ecosystem vision made possible by the skills-based learner revolution. And to urge that we consider the promise and the risks as these tools, standards, and practices begin touching humans. And to design accordingly before it’s too late.
Skills Visibility: Why and How a Skills-Based Economy can be More Equitable offers a vision to reinvent the talent ecosystem, with specific calls to action for:
- Education and training providers
- Associations and intermediaries
- Technology platforms and vendors
