The Centre Launches Its 2017 Technology@Work MOOC


On October 2nd, the Centre will launch its free massive open online course (MOOC) exploring how emerging technologies are reshaping the world of work in the 21st century. The six-week Technology@Work course is the flagship of the ITC-ILO’s contribution to the Future of Work Centenary Initiative, and your participation is free, on a full or part-time basis.

From automation, digitalization to AI, emerging technological innovations are expected to profoundly change the way we work and the 21st-century skills in-demand in the coming years. Harnessing the potential of these technologies will be crucial in creating new employment opportunities that promote decent work and inclusive economic growth set forth in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.


With the participation of researchers, world-class thinkers, policymakers, technologists and UN staff, the Technology@Work MOOC will contribute to a much-needed global conversation about disruptive technology’s impact on the future of work.This MOOC also provides a collaborative and innovative learning platform that places an emphasis on practical and evidence based solutions and tools that will help learners to anticipate and build workforce resiliency in a digital future.
