CERIC Free Webinar

 

May 13, 2020

12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. EDT

In this free webinar, we will discuss the Outcome-Based Experiential Learning (OBEL) Framework, which is a concise systematic set of outcomes, design factors and planning template for an overall aligned Experiential Learning design and implementation plan. Furthermore, we will explore how this Framework can be applied to remote EL and WIL and help career practitioners answer the questions of what will be a good EL option for post-secondary institutions and community organizations in our current time.

 

Webinar Learnings:

  • Identify priority outcomes that resonate with learner, organizational and institutional needs to inform options
  • Identify options available in our current reality and based on five key EL design factors
  • Identify feasible activity and assessments options that align with outcomes
  • Distinguish between opportunity types (WIL, practice spaces, projects and employment programs)
