Title: "Measuring Results – Moving beyond the traditional yardstick to individual competency-based options"
Presenter: Megan Hamlet
About the session:
Megan will explore the rapid shift in client abilities and needs meshing with our expectations as facilitators and instructors. Traditionally, employment service programming has followed a series of steps and assignments provided to students to showcase the transfer of knowledge in the classroom. This has typically included one project with the same due date, the exact requirement of words or subject matter and applied to all the participants in the program. So, what would happen if we tried something different? What would it look like if we take Culture into account and a storytelling option available? Would a graphically designed digital submission carry the same weight? With such diverse and varied abilities, demographics, and backgrounds of our learners, how can we forge a new path of options that make learners feel represented and excited to use their talents?
You will come away from the session with:
Assignment ideas to consider for your programs or clients
Why this change is needed for our learners
How individuals can thrive applying their unique abilities.
