Digital Skills for the Future of Work: Solution Seeker
Show Notes

In our third season, we will explore the new Profile of a Lifelong Learner, a framework that defines the digital skills needed for success in the future of work. Released in late 2020, the Profile includes five Features that unpack the intersection of digital and lifelong learning skills. Nested under each Feature are three Practices - habits that adult learners, job seekers, and workers should develop to thrive at work, in school, and in community life. 

Our hope is that the research-backed Profile will help job seekers, workers, and job coaches build new skills that effectively prepare today’s workers for the jobs of today and tomorrow. Check out to explore the framework and learn about the methodology for how it was developed. 

In this episode, we explore the fourth of five Profile Features: Solution Seeker. Joining us for the conversation are two of our SkillRise advisors: 

  • Tacy Trowbridge, Lead for Global Education Thought Leadership & Advocacy for Adobe
  • Kelly Middleton, Manager, Program Implementation for the National Association of Workforce Boards

In this episode, we talk about:

  • What can help teams find success in the digital age
  • How to build meaningful online communities
  • The power of video in helping us do important work
  • How to lead in uncertain times and approach complex problems
  • The importance of creating opportunities for learning at work
  • How to structure more meaningful feedback sessions
