Ready for Life, Ready for Work: Transformative Learning for Personal and Professional Development
November 14, 2019 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
In this interactive workshop, our facilitators will lead a comprehensive exploration into how people learn, including how we teach, assess, and design programs. This work will be considered in a context of connection to stakeholders outside the academy, including how collaboration with employers and community partners can provide students with experiential opportunities to apply learning, reflect, develop, and grow. This workshop is designed to provoke new ways of thinking about the strong connections between transformative learning, curricular and co-curricular learning design, and employability development. This workshop is geared to faculty, administrators, assessment leaders, student affairs personnel, and career development professionals who will benefit from assessing their programs’ or institutions’ existing approaches, considering the potential impact of new approaches, tools, and methodologies; and creating a plan of action to adapt or incorporate new approaches or ideas into their own work.
