Traditional education and training methods are not well suited to the task of equipping the new workforce. Different skills are needed to succeed in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environment. Arts-based initiatives provide a new model for teaching twenty-first century job skills by leveraging an emerging arts-based pedagogy as a fundamentally different approach to teaching, training, and equipping a new generation of workers, uniquely qualified to function in this new environment.
The new pedagogy is based on four arts-based processes:
- Skills Transfer
- Projective Technique
- Illustration of Essence
