Focus on Career Pathways and College Transitions in November
In November, two of the LINCS Community groups, Career Pathways and Postsecondary Completion, are planning to highlight 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.
This week I want to highlight the free online course, Integrating Career Counseling and Planning into Adult Education. This self-paced course should take about 3 hours to complete. This course is intended for adult educators, administrators, coaches, case managers, transition specialists, career counselors and others working with adult learners seeking to transition to the next step along a career pathway. The course features three modules: (1) Career Counseling and Planning Programs; (2) Individual Career Development Plan Process; and (3) Transition to Employment and Postsecondary Education. LINK
Please share your comments below if you have already taken this course.
If you have never signed up for an online course on the LINCS portal, then you have to setup a login for the Learning Portal. You can keep it simple and just use the same login credentials as the LINCS Community and once your registration process is complete, you can start the course right away.
I would love to hear about other resources that you use in your practice or those that you have found useful around integrating career counseling and planning in your program.
Please note that all discussions around DICP resources will be cross-posted in the Career Pathways and Postsecondary Completion groups.
