Inaugural Event for the Center for Research on College-Workforce Transitions

May 22, 2017

Why work ethic and self-regulated learning are essential skills for student success in work and life

What types of skills do college students need to succeed in today’s rapidly evolving labor market and society? Research shows that a strong work ethic and the ability to self-regulate one’s own learning is a competency highly valued by employers yet often challenging to teach to students. In this inaugural CCWT seminar, two experts will discuss why these skills are so important and how they can be cultivated in the classroom. Center Director Matthew Hora will moderate a discussion on these topics and introduce the goals and initial activities of CCWT.
