Keynote Description

Dr. Fleming’s inspiring presentation entitled “Asking the Right Questions to Facilitate Student Success” discusses new paradigms and tangible discussion prompts to help all students gain a competitive advantage. Technical skills are the new currency in the 21st century, but how do we balance preparing students for both higher education and the workforce? Instructional Dean, author, and producer of the viral animated video Success in the New Economy, Dr. Fleming will make a clear case for students to explore career choices early, make informed decisions when declaring their college education goal, and consider technical skill acquisition and real-world application in tandem with a general education. Finally, his new video will both invigorate and challenge the evolution of Career Readiness. Are you ready to pivot?
