Human capital research is at the intersection of education, business, and economics. This project examines strategies for education as intellectual foundations, training to develop competencies as a strategy to address skill gaps, the evolving nature of work, and strategies for developing technical, knowledge-based hard skills and values-based soft skills.
Broad in scope, active, hands-on, project-based, and service learning methods help students and trainees internalize skills and knowledge more deeply than lecture- and demonstration-based instruction alone. Strategic partnerships between education, business, and industry groups are powerful in addressing skill gaps: By working together (locally, regionally, and nationally) to define new and evolving skill needs and developing curricula and training plans, learners develop skills conducive to life-sustaining earnings and the intellectual foundations to chart a path of lifelong learning and growth.
