Seamless: Soft Skills in the Classroom and Beyond
Monday, November 18 at 2:00 PM (ET)

Presented by: Susan Roberts

With the implementation of WIOA in adult education, programs are asking themselves, "How can I teach academic and soft skills in my classroom in a way that will most benefit my students?" Ninety-two percent of executives say that candidates lack the soft skills needed to be active contributors in their workplaces. Adult educators can help. In this interactive seminar, participants will learn about and discuss strategies for the seamless integration of soft skills and academics, identifying best practices and potential partnerships in the quest for seamless classrooms.
