Higher Education and the Future of Skills Development After COVID-19

In this episode of the Workday Podcast, guests Sean Gallagher, executive director of the Center for the Future of Higher Education and Talent Strategy, and executive professor of educational policy at Northeastern University, and Joellen Shendy, product strategy director, Workday Student, make it their business to think about the future of higher ed. They share their insights with us on the short- and long-term impacts of COVID-19.
