New Online Course | Workforce Preparation Activities in the Classroom: Contextualizing Employability Skills for Deeper Learning

Workforce Preparation Activities in the Classroom: Contextualizing Employability Skills for Deeper Learning is now available in the LINCS Learning Portal!

This 90-minute self-paced online course is designed for adult educators, administrators, teachers, and advisors who would like more familiarity with incorporating workforce preparation and employability skills into instructional activities. It is a follow-up to LINCS’ Introduction to Workforce Preparation and Employability Skills, which covers workforce preparation and the specific skills outlined in the U.S. Department of Education’s Employability Skills Framework.

After completing Workforce Preparation Activities in the Classroom: Contextualizing Employability Skills for Deeper Learning, participants will be able to,

  • describe the rationale behind contextualized instruction that simultaneously addresses college and career readiness instruction and general workforce preparation and employability skills,
  • demonstrate how this rationale is already incorporated into an existing curriculum,
  • explain best practices concerning workforce preparation activities as referenced in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and illustrate how these practices are currently being used to teach employability skills to adult learners, and
  • locate resources to develop and incorporate workforce preparation activities into curriculum and instruction.

All LINCS courses provide a downloadable certificate of completion to document course participation.

To access the course, create or log into your LINCS user account and locate the course in the LINCS Learning Portal.
