New LINCS Courses!

Dear Colleagues,

There are NEW courses on the LINCS Learning Portal.  Teaching Adult English Learners: Principles and Practices and three Adult Career Pathways (ACP) courses.  Upon completion of any new course, participants will receive a course completion certificate. 

The Teaching Adult English Learners: Principles and Practices course is designed to support teachers new to working with adult English learners, or ELs. After completing the course, participants will be able to identify and apply appropriate instructional strategies for teaching adult ELs. They will also have strengthened their skills as an instructor and be able to implement classroom management practices to optimize learning in both in-person and virtual learning environments. ​

The ACP Course 1. Building Strategic Partnerships: Engaging Employers course is the first in the series of three self-directed courses focusing on adult career pathways and is intended for multiple audiences, especially those interested in developing stakeholder and employer relationships for instructional enhancements and workforce preparation skill-building or work-based learning.

The ACP Course 2. Building a Bridge to Adult Career Pathways course is the second course in the series and is intended for local program administrators. However, state directors, department chairs, deans, academic senates, career development staff, curriculum developers, and other education, workforce, and community professionals will benefit from understanding how this course supports the design of bridge programs and the alignment of curriculum and employment outcomes.

The ACP Course 3. Instructional Considerations for Adult Career Pathways course is the third in the series and is intended for adult basic education (ABE) and English language acquisition (ELA) instructors, and other education professionals teaching or developing curricula for adult career pathways (ACPs).
