Employers demand strong employability skills, and their demand for these skills is increasing. Many technician educators find it challenging to engage in developing these skills. Join presenters as they discuss some tools and techniques that their research has identified. 

Participants will receive a downloadable handbook with tools and techniques for educators and employers called Working Stronger, Working Smarter. 

Impact evaluation can be a powerful way to assess the long-term or broader effects of a project. Attention to causal inference, which attributes change to the project and its activities, sets impact evaluation apart from other types of evaluation. Impact evaluation can support deeper learning and direction for project scaling and future sustainability.

This webinar is an introduction to impact evaluation and how it can be realistically implemented in ATE projects. ATE principal investigators, project and center staff, and evaluators who attend this webinar will learn:

  • the basic tenets of impact evaluation,
  • strategies for determining causal attribution, and
  • the resources needed to implement impact evaluation for your project

Instructors set the tone in the classroom with their approach to their work and students; through their actions, instructors communicate their character, credibility, and convictions. Research has shown that engagement in today’s classroom requires a shift from traditional pedagogy, indicating that students now respond to how instructors make them feel rather than what they say. This means that in order to be an effective instructor, educators must learn how to connect with their students.

World-renowned leadership expert John C. Maxwell says that if you want to succeed, you must learn how to connect with people. And while it may seem like some folks are just born with it, the fact is anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection. Through interactive discussions, personal reflections, and group activities, workshop participants learn new perspectives, practical tools, and key takeaways that are crucial to the skill of connecting. Participants return to their classrooms ready to implement new action plans and lead with renewed passion and commitment.

By the end of this workshop, participants know or are able to:

  • Build a heartfelt rapport with students.
  • Simplify messages down to their most relevant points.
  • Share stories and illustrations to make important points more memorable.
  • Communicate with character, credibility, and conviction.
  • Identify and relate to all types of students in a way that increases influence.
  • Forge connections that inspire trust, motivate hard work, and generate positive momentum in the classroom.

Participants receive a Certificate of Attendance upon completing the workshop.
