Hi GitHub Education Community,
Our upcoming March GitHub Campus Program newsletter will highlight (Preface - Global Competitiveness Report Special Edition 2020: How Countries are Performing on the Road to Recovery | World Economic Forum), which was released by the World Economic Forum. The timely report focuses on important priorities necessary for recovery and revival, and analyzes historical trends on factors of competitiveness.
The report breaks down recommendations and timeframes within four broad areas of action: reviving and transforming the enabling environment, reviving and transforming human capital, reviving and transforming markets, and reviving and transforming the innovation ecosystem. The following are a few of the key recommendations that reach the tech community:
- Countries should focus on scaling up reskilling and upskilling programs
- Leaders should work to update education curricula and expand investment in the skills needed for jobs in markets of tomorrow
- Governments/Countries should rethink labour laws for the new economy and use new talent management technologies to adapt to the new needs of the workforce
I’d like to engage with our community to ask the following questions:
Do you think these recommendations will impact you or your campus?
Do you have any hacks for learning new skills?
