As you will remember, two of the LINCS Community groups, Career Pathways and Postsecondary Completion, are highlighting resources such as program implementation tools, archived webinars and online courses from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Vocational and Adult Education funded project, Designing Instruction for Career Pathways (DICP). These resources are now available within our LINCS Resource Collection, if you use the search term – DICP. We hope that highlighting these professional development materials will impact your program and practice.
For the next few days (into next week) we will be highlighting the topic of Engaging Employers in Adult Career Pathways, and there are a number of resources from the DICP (Designing Instruction for Career Pathways) project that can inform us and help us think about this topic, including a webcast, an online course, and several resources.
Here is the information about the online course:
Engaging Employers in Adult Career Pathways
This course will take approximately 2 hours to complete.
Engaging Employers in Adult Career Pathways helps adult education instructors and program administrators understand how to identify, engage, and sustain engagement of appropriate employers in the development of career pathways programs. The course is self-paced and features three modules: (1) Creating a Business-Education Partnership; (2) Building Business Engagement; and (3) Sustaining Business Engagement.
If you have never signed up for an online course on the LINCS Learning Portal, you will have to setup a login for the Learning Portal. This is a separate login from your Career Pathways Community of Practice login. The LINCS Learning Portal can be accessed here: https://lincs.ed.gov/.
After you have taken this course, share some of your thoughts about it with the group. If you respond to this post with your comments, we will be able to keep all the comments about this topic together in one thread. This discussion doesn’t have to happen this week. It can take place over time as people have the opportunity to access the information.
I will follow up tomorrow with resources concerning Engaging Employers in Adult Career Pathways and information about the webcast on this topic.
