Upcoming Webinars:

Creating a Program Review that Implements Guided Pathways and Works for Student Service Programs

11/20/2019 | 12 Noon – 1:00 PM – Register Now

Changing the ways we work and our perspectives on our work is dependent upon our governance structures and processes. Program Review can be an exciting tool to take a deep dive into programs that examine the entire program including areas outside of a discipline. Program Review can produce the exciting collaboration across student services and instruction that are important to implementing Guided Pathways. Join this webinar as we consider aspects of Program Review with Guided Onboarding, Strategic Intervention, and Equity.

Ensuring Learning (Pillar 4) by Understanding Transfer and Careers

12/4/2019 | 12 Noon – 1:00 PM – Register Now

The biggest concern for students is connecting their educational pathways to careers. CTE programs have done this well, but how do we do that in other programs? What skills are needed in the work world and how do we find content to embed in our courses that represent the kind of work students will be required to do in their careers. Join us as we provide resources and opportunity to more effectively link what the students see in programs to what they experience outside of college.
