Using Online Learning to Prepare Low-Skilled Adults for the Workplace

Session 7: 11:20 AM-12:20 PM, Room 204

Abstract

Do your students lack the skills they need to transition from unsatisfying jobs to rewarding careers? Have you been looking for a collection of learner-centered workplace preparation resources you can use to support students in and out of the classroom? If your answer to either of these questions is yes, ProLiteracy can help! Our new series of direct-to-student online courses help learners to develop the skills they need to get a job, and keep the job. Written with low-skilled adults in mind, the student courses are interactive, easy to navigate, and can be viewed on any device. The supplemental online instructor course includes strategies for reinforcing what students have learned, and helping them in the areas they find most challenging.
