Workshop Series: Reframing Metamajors to Create Equitable Guided Pathways
Join RP Group, JobSpeaker, and WestEd for a workshop series focused on reframing metamajors as a critical strategy to create equitable guided pathways at your college. Each workshop has a separate registration and will be focused on data and tools that can help align your college structures and support systems to make more equitable, student-centered pathways to living wage jobs in your region. Join one, two, or all three workshops!
Workshop 1: Designing Metamajors to Address Equity Gaps
Thursday, May 6, 2021 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm | Presented by WestEd
Presenter: Kathy Booth
Clarify how you can construct metamajors that help students imagine their futures, connect with others who share their dreams, and practice the essential skills within related disciplines.
Learn a new framework to help students imagine, connect, and practice throughout their college journey.
Leave with a set of tools that help to identify core skills at the metamajor level that connect academic pathways to jobs--particularly for non-CTE disciplines.
Workshop 2: Leveraging Student Support (Re)defined in Guided Pathways
Thursday, May 13, 2021 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm | Presented by RP Group
Presenter: Darla Cooper
Examine the Imagine-Connect-Practice Framework through the lens of the Six Success Factors in order to support a more effective and holistic approach to providing students with a valuable experience in their metamajors.
Explore what metamajors would look like if students were experiencing the Six Success Factors as they Imagine, Connect, and Practice.
Workshop 3: Aligning Course Learning Outcomes to Occupations
Thursday, May 20, 2021 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm | Presented by JobSpeaker
Presenter: Jarlath O’Carroll
View the end-to-end technical support structure that will help students see their pathway through education into jobs and a career. The technical support provides a front-facing view into the metamajors but also provides on-going engagement of a skills pathway that ensures students see the benefits of their work.
See how the technical support helps students stay on the path, collect essential skills, find work-based learning opportunities, and understand how their path leads into employment.
