Knowledge + Skills = A Valuable College Experience
  • R. Eric Landrum, Boise State University
Do today’s bachelor’s degree recipients graduate with the requisite skills and abilities, coupled with their content knowledge, to be successful in the workplace? In this podcast, Dr. Landrum explores this knowledge vs. skills debate. He focuses on the key role that assessment plays in advancing both the quality of an undergraduate education and the preparation of future graduates. The goal of a broad-based liberal arts education is not job training, but a great deal of financial investment and human capital could be wasted if newly minted graduates do not have both the knowledge and skills to be employable.
