Description This entirely online CoP incorporates both collaborative work (online in Moodle) and two live sessions (3-hour online workshop). This module provides examples of integrating transferable work skills and contextualizing workplace forms and activities into general English as a second language (ESL) class instruction. The purpose is to provide background to educators for teaching skills transferable from the classroom to the workplace and to explicitly teach students how to articulate those skills. Session 1 emphasizes the need to directly teach transferable skills and the connection between using these skills in the classroom and in the workplace.
Goals CALPRO provides professional development services to adult educators from California Adult Education funded agencies. There is no registration fee to participate. This workshop is designed for ESL classroom instructors, ESL lead teachers, and adult education administrators who are interested in integrating transferable skills into classroom instruction. Attend both live sessions. Dates: April 20, 2021, 9:00 am -12:00 pm and May 3, 2021, 9:00 am -12:00 pm. Registration deadline is April 4, 2021. Notification of acceptance will occur by April 5, 2021.
