According to experts, workers need to develop technology agility (the ability to quickly adapt to new, destructive, expansive, or convergent technologies) in order to succeed in a post-pandemic office environment.
The impact of a pandemic on our daily lives is unprecedented. COVID-19 has changed the way we communicate and the way we learn and do business. High-tech agility is no longer a buzzword, but it is a skill set that students and professionals need to have to move forward in the post-pandemic world. It’s a word from the two Deans of Long Island, Business and Technology Colleges and Universities. They share advice with viewers of a free Schneps Media webinar called Tech-Agility. Skills needed to succeed in school and business
“Students are preparing for time, discipline, and continuity of autonomy,” said Dr. Babak D. Beheshti, Dean of the New York Institute of Technology’s Faculty of Engineering and Computational Science. “Our future was about to happen. COVID-19 accelerated it.”
Dr. Raj Devasagayam, Dean of the State University of New York Business School in Old Westbury, will also speak at the September 17th webinar. Paul Trapani, President of Long Island Software & Technology Network (LISTnet), moderates this informative discussion and interactive Q & A.
Devasagayam says flex-learning (a variation of a hybrid learning model where students learn from experts on their own schedule, rather than at a fixed time and place) is currently being used in schools to control the spread of the coronavirus. Students want to see how the office will work in the future.
“They didn’t exist, and can now be learned from experts at their convenience, which is now standard,” he said. “The world of technology has accelerated in response to COVID-19. As business teachers, we need to adapt.”
