We've learned the lessons the hard way - so you don't have to!  In this session, Anson Green and Carrie Tupa give a "soup-to-nuts" outline of what it takes to implement a successful I-BEST program, from selecting the right students to creating system change. 

 Specific session topics include:

  • History and development of I-BEST and its different forms
  • Student selection criteria/ identifying a "best-fit"
  • Comprehensive assessment
  • Career EASE bridge curriculum
  • Instructor collaboration
  • Systemic considerations
  • Advising and case management
  • Building "win-win" partnerships
  • Funding models
  • Successful transitions to employment and beyond

Session Length: 1-2 full work-days
Session Audience: Can be easily tailored for instructors, administrators or policy/ decision makers
