This is an online course! 

The purpose of this session is to expose career services professionals to strategies that can be useful to create pedagogically sound, relevant, and successful short-term career development courses. Questions related to career development courses are frequently asked via the NACE Community, particularly as institutions identify models of presenting these courses in a post-pandemic world and employers identify ways in which they can engage institutions to support their efforts. Thus, we believe that this topic is both timely and important. Both presenters have approximately 10 years’ experience teaching undergraduate and graduate students, with at least three+ years in career development instruction. They have spearheaded continuous development and revision of their current required, undergraduate career development course, offered in-person, online, and in three-, five-, and 10-week formats. Improvements are regularly made based on employer partner feedback and emergent instructional best practices.

The key elements involved in this presentation are based on published and recognized literature related to Quality Matters course design standards, rapport building between teachers and students (Glazier, 2021), and even online course development (Darby & Lang, 2019).

Using a required undergraduate career development course at the University of Louisville’s College of Business as a model, we intend to share lessons we learned about how we improved the course and identified effective strategies.

We also plan to engage audience members in reflecting on key elements that go into designing a good course, such as human, time, and tech resources, course objectives vis-à-vis term length, available internal and external partners who can support course development efforts, and elements related to diversity and inclusion (e.g., accessibility, diverse content and examples, assignment choice, etc.). Our goal is to model different ways of engaging audience members so they can use such strategies as they develop their own courses.

Following this program, you will be able to:

  • Utilize state-tested and trusted strategies on their own campuses to develop/improve career management courses;
  • Identify elements to consider, based on their own campus missions and goals, as well as internal/external resources, when putting their course together; and
  • Connect with colleagues with similar interests who they can interact with in these endeavors after the conference.

Help us cultivate a community we all enjoy by reviewing and following the Code of Conduct.  

Our Purpose  

Thank you for being a part of the online CDPC social learning community. To ensure that all members have the best possible experience, we have a few ground rules that we ask everyone to adhere to. This code of conduct applies equally to every person in the community and is intended to foster an online space that is inclusive, safe, and welcoming to all. 

Community Rules 

Be welcoming 

We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities. We aim to create and facilitate a community that promotes excellence and innovation in career and workforce development. Please extend respect to all members; we all come from different backgrounds and levels of knowledge and there is no such thing as a stupid question. 

Be respectful 

We won’t all agree all the time, but when we disagree don’t let those disagreements turn into personal attacks. A community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened will not be a productive one. Instead, when having discussions in the online community, create productive conversations around the content being presented, not the person behind the content. Any post that is determined to be “hate speech” towards any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation.  

Hate Speech could include and is not limited to:  

  • Violent threats or language directed against another person 
  • Discriminatory jokes, language, or materials 
  • Defamatory or abusive language or materials 
  • Profane or illegal materials 
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior 

A good rule of thumb is to never post anything that you wouldn’t be comfortable with the world seeing or that you wouldn’t want anyone knowing came from you. We ask that you keep in mind the focus of this community, which is building excellence and innovation in career and workforce development for all individuals.  

Be considerate of the purpose of the community 

This community will be focused on building excellence and discussing innovation in the career and workforce development field. The goal of this community is to communicate goals, challenges, constructive feedback, and questions in relation to career and workforce development. The community should be a place for continued learning and development as well as a place to discuss the future of our field (solicitation without written consent by the Project or Advisory team, is strictly prohibited). Any post that is determined to be soliciting any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation. 

Post your discussions or documents in the most appropriate group or topic 

Make reasonable efforts to ensure that posts and materials are allocated to the appropriate group or topic. This will prevent cluttering the community and make it easier for everyone to find the information that they are seeking. Individuals who do this repeatedly will be contacted by one of the group admins and asked to follow these guidelines.  

Privacy and Release of Information  

CDPC-CEDC will not release your information to any third-party agencies.  

Group Admins 

There are four group admins who are available to you. Below are their names and their spoken language. 

Heather Powell | Anglophone 

Gabrielle St-Cyr | Francophone/Anglophone 

Florence Desrochers | Francophone/Anglophone

Muriel Andoblé-Yao | Francophone
