Profession-Based Learning in a Disrupted Age

From the A NEW WAY FORWARD SUMMIT on May 28, 2020

Corey Mohn, Executive Director of the CAPS Network speaks with panelists Ethan Wiechmann, Cedar Falls CAPS Director; Nate Clayberg, Cedar Falls CAPS Program Manager; Tammy Fry, Blue Valley CAPS Teacher Education Instructor.
 
Profession-based learning knocks down the walls of a conventional classroom and places young people side-by-side with industry professionals. In this session, join practitioners from the CAPS Network to learn what profession-based learning looks like and how these leaders have pivoted to the "new normal" of virtual learning. Examples will include the inaugural Virtual Career Week and "Team COVID" professional skill modules. Attendees will be invited to share best practices of their own and imagine new possibilities and experiments for deployment in the fall.
