DASH Digital Pathways
This proposal combines resources from three universities, Adobe and the public education system to develop in-demand digital skills for educators, entrepreneurs and early career professionals, especially those who do not have a STEM background. DASH—which stands for Design, Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities—aims to help participants build skills and earn verified credentials through online programs to help them achieve relevant, sustainable careers in Utah’s classrooms and high-tech economy.
