Featured Webinar

Bridging the Skills Gap; Title I and II Working Collaboratively

Pennsylvania is faced with the same challenges as other states across the country; many employers cannot find skilled workers to hire, and numerous job seekers have barriers to getting back into the labor force. This webinar will explore some data about the skills gap that Pennsylvania faces, especially with the challenges of helping to educate and upskill those with barriers to employment (such as low literacy levels or inconsistent work history). It will also outline a couple of solutions that adult educators and workforce development boards can invest in (such as integrated education and training) that will help bridge this skill gap and help our communities grow and will provide best practices that can be used across the nation.

Upcoming Webinar

GO HYBRID NOW: BUILDING A VIRTUAL CLASSROOM AND INTERACTIVE DIGITAL ACTIVITIES

Hybrid learning leads adult education students along the path to the digital independence needed for them to succeed in today’s schools and workplaces while giving teachers the tools and control to target the skills their students need. In this session, participants will experience a fully-stocked virtual classroom that uses the free learning management system, Canvas. The key features of the classroom—assignments, quizzes, and content pages—will be explored. In addition, free and low-cost sites and online tools that can be added to the virtual classroom will be discussed. Activities using some of the free online tools will be demonstrated to provide a springboard for brainstorming how participants can use the tools and virtual classroom during face-to-face class time. Both the tech-troubled and tech-savvy are welcome.
