Earn and Learn: Alternatives to Higher Education

Square Image

This week we will be hosting our inaugural Ease Learning Book Club. We’ll be discussing Ryan Craig’s latest, “Apprentice Nation: How the ‘Earn and Learn’ Alternative to Higher Education Will Create a Stronger and Fairer America“. During the discussion we will challenge institutions to rethink how their academic programs align with the needs of today’s workforce.

On the FYI: For Your Institution podcast by Mongoose, Ryan posed an important question: “How can America once again become an Apprentice Nation?”.

At Ease Learning, we prioritize learner-centered engagement and use Universal Design for Learning (UDL) methods to meet the needs of all learners. Through our talent network, we also provide a path to meaningful work with the flexibility of remote employment for Subject Matter Experts around the globe.

Listen in on the full podcast featuring Ryan Craig, and don’t hesitate to get in touch!
