A Model for Intentional College and Career Learning Inside and Outside the Classroom

A Model for Intentional College and Career Learning Inside and Outside the Classroom

In this Insight Brief, the authors present a five component model of student-directed learning for use by college programs to teach and track student specific college and career academic, social, and independence, skills without segregated courses. The five components include, 1) the foundational use of person-centered planning, 2) a set of college and career skills divided into four domains (academic and career habits, community engagement, balance of multiple roles, and self-direction), 3) a goal setting and monitoring process supported by 4) circles of support, and 5) intentionally planned college and career experiences. Three worksheets are a included and facilitate both the student and the program in tracking student learning.
