LEVERAGING YOUR PATHWAY ADVISORY BOARD TO ENGAGE INDUSTRY PARTNERS AND KEEP STUDENTS CONNECTED TO PURPOSE
An engaged advisory board is an essential component of a high-quality Linked Learning pathway and critical to providing students with quality career learning and work-based learning experiences. Advisory boards—made up of school administrators, pathway faculty, and industry partners—provide guidance on career-themed curriculum design, engage directly with students in their projects, and provide valuable work-based learning opportunities. As schools shift to distance and hybrid learning models, it is more important now than ever to engage industry partners on pathway advisory boards to keep young people connected to purpose by making learning real and relevant for them. Through this webinar, participants will learn how to establish and meaningfully involve industry partners on advisory boards to: serve as professional mentors to young people, build students’ social capital and professional networks, help develop curriculum and projects that integrate real-world applications of the industry theme, provide feedback on student work, and connect students to high-quality work-based learning experiences amid COVID-19 and beyond.
