When tech guides the graduate education journey

We are in the midst of a great paradigm shift in global graduate education due to the convergence of several factors. Some are more obvious, like the global pandemic and the forced shift to distance learning, and some have been slower to emerge despite the vast needs, like implementation of holistic admissions processes and actionable equity and access. What we do know for certain is that the critical importance placed on the ways in which students navigate the phases of their education to employment journey is here to stay – and as an education technology community, we must support learners as they move along their individual journeys. ETS, Kira Talent and Territorium are uniting experience and innovation to drive this new normal through a digital experience centered on learners being able to demonstrate who they are, what they know, and who they want to be – in a way not possible before – that empowers institutions and prospective employers to make more informed decisions. By combining best-in-class tools, technologies and assessments to create a single source for learners to build their personal stories, including a comprehensive learner record that provides far more than what is gained in a classroom, we are leveraging data to connect individuals with graduate programs, faculty members and employers based on fit, skills and knowledge in a truly holistic way.
