[00:00:07] The University of Phoenix was all about addressing the needs of working adults. The school is built around the working learner, so we think about all the pressure, the conflicts, the opportunities. Today, we're building a brand new learning platform. We're building exciting technologies that help students learn, such as adaptive learning. So we are thinking all the time about how technologies translate into, certainly, the education, but then the workplace. [00:00:34]
[00:00:34] Employees will benefit from our degrees because they're from a regionally accredited institution, which is the gold standard for all academic institutions. Those degrees prepare students to understand how to do research, how to work on projects, how to collaborate on projects as they do in the real world. They take that classroom experience, and they take it forward into the workplace almost immediately. [00:01:03]
[00:01:03] In the real world, things work differently. We bring those real world experiences to the University of Phoenix classroom. [00:01:12]
[00:01:13] Healthcare is a touch point across so many industries that normally we don't even think about. I think the University of Phoenix is able to meet the needs of employers in a very different way with workforce solutions. [00:01:27]
[00:01:28] Competency mapping is very important for institutions. One of the things I'm striving for is to work with our industries and say what is it that you need our graduates to look like. What is it that you—what competencies do you need them to have? How can we embed some of those competencies and skills in our training right now so that at the end of the day, when they go out to work, there is less of those competencies that you have to address. [00:01:52]
[00:01:53] Virtual organizations are one of the coolest things at the University of Phoenix. We've been using them in classrooms for close to ten years now, and they add an interesting dimension a lot of our students may not have access to otherwise. Virtual organization, which is essentially an organization that's been created by us, populated with the help of our academic partners, to get different real world examples, real world bio systems. We can build HR files, confidential legal files, things that a student would not have access to at their own employer. It's one of the things that I think adds the most interest to the University of Phoenix and really makes it clear how real world are programs are. [00:02:35]
[00:02:35] Working learners can apply information they receive from their courses almost immediately because they're learning from practitioner faculty. People like myself who have been in business for a long time know what kind of things employers are looking for, so they can understand what they're learning in class applies to the business and how to solve problems. [00:02:59]
[00:02:59] An employer sponsoring their employees to attend our programs benefits in many ways, but one of the most important ways is that we bring them skills in education they can use tomorrow. So it's not just that they're learning what they need to do, but they're learning it from practitioners who've done it. They are able to take that into the workforce the next day, put it into practice, use it, and really add value from day one. [00:03:22]
[00:03:23] There are so many great opportunities because education impacts every field. Everybody has a piece of making sure that's going to help better our world for the next generation. [00:03:32]
[00:03:33] The benefits for industry is clear. Our students have experience with technology. They have experience with all kinds of different learning models and learning styles. [00:03:42]
[00:03:44] We've built the entire school around the working learner. Our classroom experience, the services that we provide them are geared towards the working learning. That means that an employee is going to have a very positive experience, going to come out energized and excited about what they've learned as well as their career. [00:04:02]
