Reimagining Careers Ed 2021 Session 3
Student Centred Subject Selection: Or is it?
Student-Centred Subject Selection. Or is it?
In this interactive and informal session we'll be discussing how we can work with the uncertainty and anxiety that seems to override subject selection for the senior years of schooling. Key questions to consider include: how important is subject selection in a Covid world? How do we become agile with subject selection? How do we develop skill sets in our students which enhance agency and enables them to create possibilities for their learning and future? How do we engage parents to be positive influencers in their children’s choices?
About The Reimagining Careers Education Series
We're reimagining how we do pretty much everything - careers education included. This series of virtual meet ups is for anyone involved with student futures particularly in a K-12 setting.
The purpose is to bring together a collective of folk who are passionate about making careers education as inspiring and powerful as it should be. Each session we have a different discussion focus and invite guest speakers to share their insights and ideas.
