January 2020 Community Highlights

January saw some lively discussion in the Career Pathways community.  Members contributed to discussions about the use of Linkedin as a networking tool.  There was also continued conversation on workforce development policy for adult educators.

I posted a recent discussion of a debate over the addition Pell Grants for short-term, career training.  I'm curious about members' thoughts on how these may impact adult career pathways.

On a related note, have you seen the thread on updates to StudentAid.gov?  Share your ideas about how you teach learners about accessing federal aid for post-secondary programs.  If teaching student aid isn't part of your curriculum, but you're interested in discussing ideas, let me know!
