As we wrap up another fiscal year, I wanted to reflect on a few of our conversations in LINCS. I invite you to explore the diverse discussions held across the various communities. These are only highlights of the expansive and broad topics discussed throughout the year.
- In the Career Pathways group, we talked about Career Pathways and Social Media: LinkedIn’s Learning Path and discussed the 53 learning paths designed to help learners begin a career or advance in a current field. There were interviews with Diana Satin from Project Care and Carrier Scheiderer. There was a discussion for Health Career On-ramp for English Language Learners.
- In Disabilities and Equitable Outcomes, there was Four Moves and a Habit. We even had individuals reach out with their questions such as Teaching ESL to adult students who are deaf
- Integrating Technology was active all year with diverse topics like: Adults Using Technology to Learn Basic Skills as a Work Benefit and Do you integrate technology in your class, program(s) or school(s)? If so why?
- Professional Development included topics such as Reading on a digital platform and What is the Scarcity Mindset

I realize these are a lot of links to look through, but hopefully the you will see conversations and discussions you haven't seen yet. There are so many more communities to explore in LINCS and thse are only a few. I'd love to hear how you use these conversations and discussions outside of LINCS. What are your take-aways from these discussions?
