How To Mine Job Listings To Parse Employer’s Need

Although we often claim we have good relationships with industry sometimes it seems we can’t speak the same language when matching our program graduates with jobs. Today there are new approaches to using the information contained in job listings to better match and align educational offerings to workforce demands. Today’s catch word is “data mining” and that is exactly the approach used here. We look at examples of using information from systems like Burning Glass to refine curriculum to better match program content with industry demand. In this webinar we will discuss what is discover-able and how to use that information.

Grants and Innovation – A Great Match

Competitive grants for the NSF ATE program must be built on at least one innovative idea and the goals must be well-defined and clearly explained. However, framing an innovative idea and clearly explaining goals can be difficult. Further, proposal development requires a great deal of planning and a detailed timeline. This session will focus on planning for grant proposal development and will explore how to determine whether or not an idea is innovative, what is meant by developing and explaining goals clearly and what must be considered in planning development work and the timeline for such work.

A follow-up question and answer webinar session will be provided, Thursday, February 23, 2pm ET, to address and discuss any questions attendees may have concerning the materials shared today. To register for this Q & A session, please see below.

What Can We Know About Our Graduates As They Enter the Workforce?

Today it is critical to know more about our community college graduates as they leave us. We are driven to demonstrate the effectiveness of our programs and the achievement of gainful employment for our graduates. Direct knowledge is difficult to come by. This webinar will address the question, “What can we know?” and illustrate approaches, attempts and best practices to actually obtain information about our students as they enter and participate in the workforce. The webinar features best practices from the statewide survey to assess employment outcomes for students who have participated in career and technical education coursework at California community colleges. In addition we will discuss approaches tried and implemented at the Maricopa Community Colleges in Arizona.
