Description

The APEC Digital Workforce Development Project aims to provide promising practices and design principles to assist APEC economies in leveraging digital and distance learning technologies in order to build a strong 21st-century workforce through innovative career and technical education (CTE). The Digital Workforce Development Project convened three webinars and an in-person workshop on improving digital and distance CTE. The lessons learned and promising practices shared during these events inform the chapters and case studies of this report.  The first three chapters, which were written by industry, association and academic experts, discuss the themes of content, delivery and quality in distance CTE; the fourth chapter focuses on increasing the participation and success of women, girls and underrepresented populations in distance CTE; and the fifth chapter highlights work led by the APEC Project DARE (Data Analytics Raising Employment), focusing on distance delivery of data analytics competencies.
