FEATURED WEBINARS

BE THE KEY THAT OPENS THE DOOR FOR YOUR STUDENTS–CAREER PATHWAYS ARE LIFELINES FOR THEM!

DATE: WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2019
TIME: 2:00 P.M. EST

This webinar will explore the numerous ways career pathways can be designed and implemented to comply with WIOA regulations. From bridge programs to Integrated Education and Training (IET), the components that contribute to successful programs will be discussed, including understanding employer measures and using Labor Market Information (LMI) to build —or enhance—your career pathways program. 

Learn how to incorporate strategies for adult career pathways into your instructional program using contextualized curriculum. This webinar will define specific lessons, strategies, and activities that can be implemented in your classrooms to give your students the career counseling they missed when they left school. You are their career counselor. 

WIOA expanded the purpose of Title II to include assisting adults to transition to postsecondary education and training leading to employment. Adult educators are tasked to develop and deliver adult career pathways systems that will successfully transition low-skilled adults to postsecondary education and employment. Our classrooms are now a place where students learn not only the academics for credential success but also the workforce skills for career success.

 

BUILDING A STANDARDS-BASED PROFESSIONAL LEARNING SYSTEM FOR ADULT EDUCATORS

DATE: MONDAY, JANUARY 28, 2019
TIME: 2:00 PM, EST

How do standards help improve teacher effectiveness and guide professional learning? Learn how AZ's Adult Education Professional Learning System (AAEPLS) is designed based on the Learning Forward Standards for Professional Learning, the AZ Adult Education Teacher Standards, and the AZ Adult Education Content Standards. These sets of standards are used to guide the planning, implementation, and evaluation of professional learning at the state and local program levels.

This webinar will help adult educators-especially professional developers and administrators- to build a professional learning system to support the needs of adult educators.
