Project Based Learning Session
Ford Community Connected Learning (Ford CCL)
Have you ever wondered how to take project-based learning to the next level? In this workshop you will gain insights and tools from Ford NGL's model. You get to be the first in this exclusive workshop offered for the first time for participants outside of the Ford NGL network. Ford NGL's Community Connected Learning, CCL for short, is a scaffolded approach that brings the worlds of education and business together to provide students real world, powerful educational experiences and provide businesses with a prepared and qualified workforce. Ford CCL is like giving every high school student in your community an internship experience. Now that's powerful! As a participant in this workshop, you will gain knowledge, insights and tools to begin the journey of better connecting business and education. You will learn about the four levels in the CCL process, why CCL is effective, and how you can apply it to your community. You will also gain insights from other communities engaged in implementing Ford CCL as well as benefit from lessons they have learned along the way. You will also have an opportunity to apply your learning by creating first steps/next steps for your community and receiving feedback in the workshop to help you go further.
This session will be held from 8:00 - 12:00 on Wednesday, November 1. There are only 120 seats available for this training. Please sign up when you register for the conference.
