SEA Teams Work-Based Learning Workshop
The Central Comprehensive Center (C3) at the University of Oklahoma supported the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) during the State Education Agency Teams Work-based Learning Workshop held on April 26-28, 2017. The workshop launched an ongoing collaboration to assist states and districts in connecting work-based learning to their college and career readiness priorities. It also reinforced the connection between academic disciplines and career and technical education to build a cross-sector infrastructure to strengthen work-based learning opportunities for middle and high school students, and engage in a peer exchange network to share emerging practices and strategies.
