How Evolving Technologies Are Widening the Workforce Skills Gap

As ChatGPT continues to take the world by storm, it’s becoming a prime example of how fast technology is evolving today — and the growing challenge of keeping digital skills up to date among today’s learners. Artificial intelligence is not the only field surging ahead: According to (ISC)2, for example, growth in the cybersecurity industry is quickly outpacing the number of skilled workers available to fill the need. The nonprofit membership association for information security leaders estimates the 2022 global cybersecurity workforce gap at 3.4 million people.

Programs that provide in-demand tech skills training are not only vital to prepare learners for the workforce of the future, but they are also a differentiator for colleges and universities under pressure to recruit and retain students. In this industry fireside chat, Campus Technology Editor-in-Chief Rhea Kelly will speak with Tony Holmes, Practice Lead for Solutions Architects at Pluralsight, about where the biggest skills gaps are, common barriers for learners, and strategies for integrating skills training into higher education curricula.
