Webinar Series: Reframing Metamajors to Create Equitable Guided Pathways

WestEd Webinars

Join RP Group, JobSpeaker, and WestEd for a three-part workshop series focused on reframing metamajors as a critical strategy to create equitable guided pathways at your college.

Each workshop focuses on data and tools to help align your college structures and support systems to make more equitable, student-centered pathways to living-wage jobs in your region.

Workshop 1:
Designing Metamajors to Address Equity Gaps

Thursday, May 6, 2021
1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Presented by WestEd

Presenter: Kathy Booth

  • Clarify how you can construct metamajors that help students imagine their futures, connect with others who share their dreams, and practice the essential skills within related disciplines.
  • Learn a new framework to help students imagine, connect, and practice throughout their college journey.
  • Leave with a set of tools that help identify core skills at the metamajor level that connect academic pathways to jobs–particularly for non-CTE disciplines.

Workshop 2:
Leveraging Student Support (Re)defined in Guided Pathways

Thursday, May 13, 2021
1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Presented by RP Group

Presenter: Darla Cooper

  • Examine the Imagine-Connect-Practice Framework through the lens of the Six Success Factors to support a more effective and holistic approach to providing students with a valuable experience in their metamajors.
  • Explore what metamajors would look like if students experienced the Six Success Factors as they Imagine, Connect, and Practice.

Workshop 3:
Aligning Course Learning Outcomes to Occupations

Thursday, May 20, 2021
1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Presented by JobSpeaker

Presenter: Jarlath O’Carroll

  • View the end-to-end technical support structure to help students see their pathway through education into jobs and a career. The technical support provides a front-facing view into the metamajors and provides ongoing engagement of a skills pathway that ensures students see the benefits of their work.
  • See how the technical support helps students stay on the path, collect essential skills, find work-based learning opportunities, and understand how their path leads into employment.
