Here are some helpful tips as you are filling out the form:
- Choose a Session Type:
- Career Preparation - This format is used if you want to find a professional who will provide advice and guidance to students to help prepare them for a specific career pathway.
- Professional Development for Teachers - This format is used when you want to create a session geared towards teacher professional development.
- Project Evaluation - This format is used when you want to invite one or more industry experts to observe a final presentation of a student project. We ask that you cluster students in groups of at least three. You also may want to give access to the professional prior to the live virtual session, so that they can review them.
- Project Mentoring - This format is used if the students are involved in a long term project or investigation and you want them to consult an industry expert during project research and development. Students will present something about their project to date and ask questions to help them remove roadblocks.
- Student Self Assessment - This format is used when the teacher wants to invite an industry expert to listen and respond to a presentation by a student who is working to attain the Micro-Enterprise Credential in the state of Louisiana, or any other applicable programs.
- Topic Presentation - This format is the most common and used when the educator wants an industry expert to talk about a particular curriculum topic or career path. This type of session will likely consist of a presentation followed by Q&A.
- Virtual Field Trips - This format is used for virtual field trips and tours where the professional will bring the students around his/her workspace.
- Virtual Job Shadow - This format allows students to shadow a professional for a short period of time and see what their work looks like on a regular basis.
- Pick the Classes that you would like to participate in this session - this is an optional field. Use this only if you have students who will be joining virtually, and you have classes set-up in My Classes. For more information about this refer to this article.
