About this event

It's a well known fact that American universities have become very expensive and increasingly inaccessible. As prices rise, many have started to question the value of a college degree, especially in an economy that values skills not often taught in traditional settings.

Join Ed tech Women for an evening to hear Mercedes Bent, the General Manager of University Programs and Partnerships at General Assembly, discuss how alternative skills-based educational models can work alongside traditional universities to create valuable and relevant experiences for students.

In this intimate "fireside" chat, Mercedes will give candid insights and discuss how to bridge the gap between theory/research-based learning and the tactical skills employees need to hit the ground running. We'll end the talk with a lively discussion! Mercedes will also be available to answer any you have afterwards.
