#VISION13 Online Seminar: Marilyn Barger

When: Monday, October 21, 2013 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Where: ACTE Live


ACTE kicks off its #VISION13 online seminar series with a discussion with Marilyn Barger on Best Practices for Integrating Industry Tours Into Career Education for Manufacturing on Monday, Oct. 21 at 2:00 p.m. As we work to close the skills gap in manufacturing, industry tours can play a central role for engaging students. Well-planned tours of a manufacturing facility can not only peak students interest, but also add relevance to their academic studies, expose them to the world of work and provide context for verbal communication skills.


 This presentation will showcase impact highlights of FLATE’s industry tour program and zero in on how Hillsborough County Public Schools is partnering with FLATE to maximize student impact by integrating new recruitment and retention strategies that build on industry and educational tour experiences. These strategies include linking the field trips to integrated curriculum and/or add contextual activities before or after the tours, expanding the industry partners to include their participation in advisory committees and curriculum content review and development, adding other mutually beneficial partnership activities and developing viable and valuable student work experiences.
