      Thank you to our sponsor, Forage! This event registration is free to all attendees.

      With studies finding only 46% of employers believe college adequately prepares students for work, the pressure for experiential learning is high. Many schools have already embraced the transition to experiential learning, but, to date, that transition has been complicated and arduous.

      Introducing virtual work experiences—free, open-access online training courses created by top companies, including JPMorgan, Citi, and BCG, to simulate day-to-day work at these companies.

      Hear from Forage and instructors from Ole Miss and CUNY who are using this innovative form of skill building in coursework for free. Learn to implement experiential learning effectively at your school.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Learners will be able to clearly understand and articulate to colleagues what virtual work experiences are and their importance in an increasingly virtual age;
      • Learners will be able to evaluate the value virtual work experience provides from the perspectives of students, schools, and employers; and
      • Learners will be able to seamlessly integrate virtual work experiences into coursework at their own institutions for free.
