Webinar Description

Looking for inspiration to make your content fresh and exciting but don't know where to start? Tune in as local educators talk about what innovative things they're doing in their classroom or across their building to increase engagement and relevance through developing career mindsets. This series will focus on educators of all types and backgrounds – from elementary to high school, urban districts to rural, across all subjects and roles (classroom teachers, counselors and administrators). With the ongoing need for professional development, but with current limited flexibility or opportunity, these mini PD's will be kept to 30 min. “easy views”. Dates and times will vary.

Guest Host: Kathryn VanOveren & Dominic Lowe, E. Kentwood HS
Kathryn and Dominic will discuss how they (along with several others sharing the load) implemented a career fair at E. Kentwood High School that they labeled FutureFest. But this career fair goes beyond just employer booths; they also introduce breakout training sessions around various career readiness topics, so students get an immersive experience.

Please note: In order to receive SCECHs for this program, attendees MUST complete the online form link shared out during the event. Sign-ups through the PD Hub alone will NOT constitute record of attending.

For school counselors: Unless otherwise noted, all Educator Spotlight Series events will be submitted to the state as credit for Career SCECHs.
