December 7 @ 3:30 pm - 5:15 pm EST

Free

Maine Campus Compact is pleased to host Making the Most of Good Work, a free virtual seminar for faculty, community-engagement officers, and career services professionals in higher education who are interested in discussing how community-based learning (CBL) fosters 21st-century skills and how faculty can align their CBL projects to career readiness.

Seminar Learning Outcomes 

Following this seminar, attendees will be able to:

  • Name and describe the 21st-century skills that employers say they most desire from new college graduates and all employees

  • Explain what 21st-century skills students practice and develop when they engage in CBL

  • Describe why CBL experiences are an excellent option for:

    • Achieving rigorous academic or discipline-based learning outcomes while simultaneously

    • Giving students the opportunity to accumulate real-world experiences that allow for skill development in context and provide examples students can use in job-search related communication

  • Incorporate into their CBL curriculum and reflection activities the tactics that prompt students to actualize, internalize, and communicate lessons learned through CBL and connect these lessons and experiences to skill development and career readiness

  • Articulate some strategies for faculty to align their CBL project with their campus’ work readiness mission and department
