Introducing Signum Path

Hi friends, as some of you know, I have been teaching with Signum University for four years (see here and here and here). With a full service, online, affordable MA program in literature and linguistics, Signum is a leader in meaningful digital education. Now they have launched a program for skills development, called “Signum Path.” I just wanted to let people know about the program which launches today.

Today, Signum University launching Signum Path, a brand new program designed to help people get the foundational skills training they need for any and every job.

The Purpose of Signum Path

Signum Path was built on the premise that there are certain types of skills all employers look for in their employees – communication skills, critical analysis skills, emotional intelligence, among others. However, the business world tends to talk about these types of skills as “soft” skills, implying that they are less important, or at least are given less emphasis, than job-specific or “hard” skills. This dichotomy is what the Signum Path program aims to remedy.

Through the Signum Path program, people will be able to sign up for classes and earn badges toward building the skill set they need to succeed in their current roles and fulfill their career goals. Companies who sign up for Signum Path can customize their program to address the skills that are most in need of proficiency by their teams.

Signum is able to deliver these new career skill courses using the same digital classroom process and technology we’ve developed for Signum Grad School. Using our existing infrastructure allows us to deliver these classes at a very affordable rate for both individuals and corporate teams.

Registration Open Now

As of today, Signum Path registration is open for classes starting in June. Individuals who are interested in taking any of our Signum Path classes can register here.

Our first slate of classes will include one course from each of the four inaugural badges:

  • Writing for Results: Nuts & Bolts
  • Person to Person: Emotional Intelligence
  • Making Verbal Connections: Two-Way Communication
  • Strengthening Your Core: Marketing Yourself

Additional classes will be offered monthly in July, August, and beyond. People can enroll in those classes now, as well.

See the full badge and course list here.

About Brenton Dickieson

“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing. This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box. Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.
