Equip Learners with the Skills Employers Care About

Grounded in learning theory, the interactive online modules challenge learners to apply what they are learning to the real world, to reflect on and question their experiences, old and new, and to assess their skills through a series of performance-based simulations and activities. This format makes it stickier for learners and helps them understand and articulate their skills on a much deeper level.
