Working Stronger and Smarter Handbook
SRI Education, a division of SRI International, addresses complex issues in education and provides research-based solutions to challenges posed by rapid social, technological, and economic change. This handbook was the result of research which aimed to clarify the drivers of the demand for employability skills, which skills are most important for technicians, what learning principles and instructional practices support their development, and what approaches to employability skills development can support improved diversity in technician fields. This work was supported with funding from the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education program.
