It’s All in the Translation–Translating Student Skills into Potential Job Tasks

Tuesday, May 21, 2013 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM MDT

As we are gathering information about a student’s interests, strengths and skills, how do we translate that information into what the student could do for tasks on the job? Many times we get stuck on the one task we witness a student perform well and then only visualize them doing that task in a new location. How do we identify new and challenging tasks the student could do in addition to what they have already tried?

This webinar will provide the audience with strategies for observing student performance, capturing descriptive information, identifying skills and abilities and then translating this information into ideas of additional job tasks that they could perform for employers.
