Title: Curriculum Alignment

Date: Thursday, June 13, 2013

Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM CDT

The user-friendly web-based interface between the massive databases of the WECM and SkillsNET's DWA Library are now linked in a crosswalk system developed by TSTC Waco and SkillsNET working together, entitled: "Skills Outcomes Analysis," SOA, which provides a streamlined process enabling college staff and faculty to more easily realign outcomes to fit the needs of their employers.
