Developing your Students' Career Awareness
For your consideration before the workshop...
When you think about the students with whom you interact at your institution and the nature of your interaction, have you been successful in helping them prepare for their future beyond graduation? What are some examples of that success?
Also, if you have a laptop that you can use to connect with the campus wi-fi, please bring it so that we may work on enhancing our resource lists more efficiently through the EER 2017 site.
GoalsDuring this session we will
- identify the stakeholders and discuss some of their roles in a student's development during matriculation
- critically evaluate issues that may be in-common and unique contributors to the career awareness of students at the various institutions that we represent
- discuss existing resources and begin to build a network through which participants of this mini-workshop can continue the exchange of information beyond the EER 2017
