You will also dig deeper into the selection and use of technologies for creating an engaging learning environment.

Why You Should Attend

This webinar series comes in response to a popular webinar delivered earlier this year by Tannis Goddard and will deepen the strategies and best practices career practitioners can use when providing remote career services. The series will provide evidence-based strategies and tools that can be adapted to a variety of career and learning settings for practitioners, managers and policymakers. While a slow return to face-to-face services is occurring, this series will focus on creating engaging and sustainable service models that can enrich the delivery of career services during COVID-19 and beyond.

NOTE: Attendees will also gain access to an online learning environment with additional resources and a discussion forum for sharing virtual best practices across the sector – extending the value of this webinar series!
