讲座摘要:

Increasingly,occupations generally considered "blue collar” (technical or vocational)

require mastery of advanced skills beyond what is available in standard

secondary education. These skills traditionally been acquired in a more

technical vocational training settings. However, in many industrialized

countries, workforces are clustering along an educational gradient into unskilled,

basic labor, at one end, and highly educated, specialized, research and

design-focused knowledge workers at the other. This neglects the

important middle range of specialized, but technically advanced skills needed

in modern production environments. Universities have not generally been

interested in this sort of specialized applied training. But employers and

other actors have begun to pressure traditional higher education (colleges and

universities) to rethink and change education to produce a better fit between

the traditional academic degree and a more practical skill set employers need.

One approach is for universities to apply their experience in applied,

industrial research to develop new teaching and training approaches to produce

skilled workers. From a policy standpoint, there is an opportunity to design

innovative policy in a way which help support the development of skilled

workforces which are adaptable to the changing needs of industry and research

as well as are capable of upgrading their skills as needed by the changing

economy. Absent this reform, other alternatives (private sector, technical

institutions, industry training) will reduce the influence universities have in

globally competitive societies.
