Transitioning: Beginning with the Future in Mind - NEW SESSION ADDED!

Due to an overwhelming response, we have added an additional session.
Monday, February 8th 10:00am-11:00am


Starting with the future in mind helps to motivate and inspire adult education students to have a vision of life's possibilities. Showing students connections between what they are learning now and what they will need for a career and for daily living promotes deeper learning and greater retention. WIOA, the Workforce Innovations and Opportunity Act, adult educations' major funding source requires student transitions. 

Online learning opportunity – completion of this session and a short application assignment will result in one Certificate of Participation to fulfill the Illinois Community College Board's yearly professional development requirement.

This session is presented online via Go To Training. There is no cost to attend.

Any questions should be addressed to Southern Illinois Professional Development Center

  1. I chose to try activities from the ABE curriculum. Of particular interest were Things I Have Done, Things I Like to Do, and Things I Would Like to Do. If the activities are used on separate occasions, then the students can compile their results and make a Venn diagram of how particular likes and skills overlap, and decide on a reasonable goal to pursue a job.
