New MIT Work of the Future Research Explores How Work-Based Learning and Online Education Are Key Elements of Adult Training – Press Release

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(Business Wire)–The MIT Task Force on the Work of the Future, a multi-disciplinary initiative examining how emerging technologies are changing the nature of work, has released three briefs that highlight the critical role skills, learning and workforce training can play in creating shared prosperity for workers.
