  • Define what a ‘bad fit' or 'toxic work environment’ is 
  • Outline and clarify your own goals before the interview 
  • Use questions during an interview to determine whether a workplace is in alignment with your goals and values 
  • Articulate strategies and practice language to frame questions 
  • Describe examples of verbal and non-verbal red flags indicating the opportunity may not be a “Good Fit” 
  • Describe factors that can make it difficult to recognize and weigh the potential impact of red flags during and after an interview

In a world driven by data, the power of evaluation comes from our ability to weave data points into a story that meaningfully answers our project’s questions. The interpretation of evaluation findings is a crucial step in the evaluation process that turns analyzed data into useful evaluative conclusions. The process of interpretations extracts valuable insights that can help project staff understand project impact and make informed decisions.  In this webinar, presenters will focus on practical strategies to interpret evaluation findings that inform meaningful project improvements and assess overall effectiveness. These strategies include comparative analysis against historical or baseline data, benchmarking against national datasets, and participatory sense-making sessions. This webinar is for project leaders and staff who are looking to make the most out of their project evaluations and evaluators who are looking to increase the transparency and utility of their evaluation conclusions.

This workshop will look at assistive technology to help with a range of writing skill levels. We'll see apps to help with different stages from drafting to revising along with learning the basics and various digital and voice options.

It is estimated that 85 percent of all jobs that will exist in 2030 have yet to be invented. Couple this with a recent survey that states nearly 50 percent of millennials do not believe college is worth it. For those who do enroll, nearly half drop out within their first year of studies and only 10 to 12 percent of students of color will persist to graduation. At the onset of the fourth industrial revolution, how can community college leaders redesign their services to help students find their personalized pathway, create a sense of belonging, and build equitable bridges to social and economic mobility? Participants learn new transformative strategies they might consider for their own institution based upon work conducted at Tallahassee Community College through the Culture of CARE initiative.

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

  • Identify the core tenets of the advent of the fourth industrial revolution as it relates to education's equity imperative, the future of work, and the future of learning.
  • Explore trends happening in higher education post-pandemic and evaluate the role of community colleges within this arena.
  • Identify strategies to take back to their campus.

How often have you heard from employers that they are looking to hire graduates with the book knowledge and essential soft skills needed to be successful in the workplace? Many employers believe soft skills are just as important, if not more so, than hard skills. As an educator, how can you teach soft skills to college students? During this workshop, participants learn about the necessary soft skills most employers desire. Participants leave with a set of strategies they can use to help their students develop soft skills that are critical for future success.

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

  • Describe employability skills.
  • Know the difference between soft and hard skills.
  • Summarize common skills desired by employers.
  • Describe ways to help students improve their soft skills.
