As technology continues to evolve and employers demand more digitally savvy hires, how can colleges make sure their students are prepared to graduate with the right skills?

The Right Curriculum for Digital Skills brings together a panel of professors and college administrators to explore this question. In this hour-long virtual forum, we’ll look at the ways colleges are strengthening digital literacy and competencies in their courses. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of our experts. Bring your ideas and share your own experiences during this special virtual forum.


This forum will seek to answer:

  • How do you ensure that this generation’s digital natives will continue to evolve their technology skills for the future?

  • How can colleges make sure digital skills are distributed equitably when many students face barriers to accessing technology?

  • And how can humanities programs develop such lessons into their traditional approaches?
