Using Career Development to Transform a School’s Culture

 Presented by: Dr. Cal Crow
Center for Learning Connections
Edmonds Community College, Lynnwood, WA  

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

For years NCDA has been working to get career development infused into the K-12 academic curriculum, with mixed results.  It’s time to reverse the order.  The current education system is not designed for student success.  Giving it a career development focus will change that.    Imagine a school system organized around the strengths, skills, talents, interests and dreams of students.  Rather than getting through the curriculum, the goal is on getting through to students.  The curriculum is a vehicle to help make this occur, but is not an end in itself.  Its purpose is to ensure that every student acquires knowledge and skill sets that will lead to a successful future.  

This webinar will demonstrate ways to transform and design a new approach to career development delivery in K-12.  NCDA School Career Counselor and Specialist Constituency will provide online, follow-up discussion forums to promote member networking and sharing of effective practices.

Viewers of the webinar are invited to leave Comments in the Discussion Forum (click here) to continue the dialog. (Members of the SCCS Constituency group will be monitoring and responding to all Comments.)
