MARCH 6, 2018 Are We Taking the “U” Out of UX?

MARCH 7, 2018 The 2018 edition of the Digital Workplace Radar is now available!

MARCH 4, 2018 a foundation for the future of work
So what is the future of work and how can we best learn how to adapt to a post-industrial, network economy? There is no shortage of future skills prescribed by various think-tanks and organizations. The World Economic Forum (2016) identified 10 work skills for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

CLARK QUINN The meta-program
| THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2018
A couple of weeks ago, I posited what I thought might make the basis for a sustainable degree program. That is, one that prepares students for a world with increasing change. In it I talked about the domains that I thought would provide a solid basis, but I did not talk about something else important.

CLARK QUINN Activity or Application?
| TUESDAY, MARCH 6, 2018
