Presenters will discuss how ICA is used in shortterm, intensive bridge classes to move students from adult education to college classes and its success in such settings. ICA is a career awareness curriculum that assists students in exploring career options, finding out which of those options are available in the community and beginning to plan career paths to their selected career.

ESC20 Adult Education and South Central GREAT Center 

Presenters will be introducing practical solutions that are student centered to help transition students into college and/or career pathways. This portfolio approach has been effective for transitioning students at a variety of levels and who may not be aware of their true goals. Participants will have a glimpse at this student centered curriculum along with actual student portfolios. The presentation will be introducing the “basics” that instructors must have to help guide their students through the maze of post-secondary admissions including step-by-step handouts that are reproducible.  Participants will also have a chance to view actual developmental post-secondary curriculum that is student centered and designed to help adult education students develop goals while they simultaneously develop writing and research skills.
