Employability Skills in Online Courses
Aligning with the mission and goals of COLRS to disseminate knowledge and foster innovation in online and blended learning, Tammy Craig, Career Specialist in Online Learning, is available to provide consultation, support and resources to faculty interested in integrating employability skill development that would complement course content based on contemporary educational theory, emerging pedagogical research and best practice methods.
Faculty have many demands and limited time. Therefore, Tammy can also serve as a liaison and facilitator between faculty and employers who have interests in developing education and business partnerships that support the curriculum. This newly formed partnership could mutually benefit all stakeholders and promote information sharing and exploration of real-world student learning activity opportunities relevant to the 21st Century Workforce.
