Setting Students Up for Success after Graduation: Using Visualizations to Tell a Story
Thursday, October 28 | 9:15AM–10:00AM ET | 202AB, 200 Level
Viewing Location: Philadelphia
Session Type: Industry Led
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session
In this session, hear from Coppin State University about how it has incorporated career-focused information throughout the learner experience. With society focused on the value of higher education, employer expectations changing, and parents and students concerned about outcomes after graduation, Coppin State incorporated new ways of learning into the student experience to support advisors, career services, and students. Presenting labor market data and how acquired skills relate to careers in visualizations has enabled better conversations about students’ goals, while also providing a self-service way for students to explore careers and employers. Hear from panelists about getting buy-in from faculty, training staff in using visualization tools, and how students are benefitting from seeing how the skills learned in courses tie to future careers.
