Event Description

Learn the Practical Steps to Develop Relevant Career Pathways for Your Students

"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" should now be rephrased to "All theory and no practical stuff makes Jack unprepared for real life"—especially in the light of K-16 education. As a teacher, what are you doing to ensure that your students are able to use the knowledge and skills they acquire in school to solve problems in real life? The writing on the wall is clearer now than ever before: If your students don’t have the skills they need, they will have trouble finding a fulfilling career.

Discover multiple resources for developing relevant career pathways in your school with career pathways and Project Based Learning (PBL) expert, Jorge Valenzuela. Valenzuela will walk you through the practical steps for developing and implementing relevant career pathways for your students—specific to your state or region—in collaboration with higher education, business partners, and the community. He will discuss the different approaches through which you can materialize these partnerships in the classroom using the instructional method of PBL. He will share authentic examples, best practices, and exemplary programs and models, and also guide you to the resources for getting started.

Attending this webinar will provide insight into the rationale of using PBL, along with the best tips on how you (and other teachers in your school) can begin using PBL right away.
