Guided Pathways & Meta Majors Professional Development
This workshop will work with participants to understand and apply the guided pathways lens/framework into classroom practices and pedagogy. Examples of workshop discussions will include: ideas of how student lived experiences and goals might inform how we categorize programs into larger groups, what we do in the classroom, and how one’s course/program fits into a student’s overall experience at Foothill
