Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I may remember.
Involve me and I’ll understand.—Chinese Proverb
This National Research Center for Career and Technical Education report “focused on developing a conceptual base for work-based learning (WBL), on a strategy that helps students apply academic and technical skills and develop employability skills.” Some of the recommendations include:
- Provide professional development for teachers and WBL coordinators to develop instructional strategies, including for cognitive transfer of problem-solving skills.
- Demonstrate strategies for involving academic and CTE teachers in the WBL process so that WBL is connected to classroom learning.
