Create an Engaging Career Course & Adapt it Online


Have you assessed your current employer engagement strategy lately? Would you like to improve and enhance your existing method for creating an in-person and online career course through the use of employer engagement and collaboration?

Join Lauren Kume and Audrey Bledsoe, The Ohio State University, to explore different ways of creating a job search preparation course for undergraduate students that ventures away from the traditional lecture-style format in favor of utilizing company representatives to teach the content. Participants will glean effective strategies for coordinating a career course where employer engagement and networking was an integral component. Backwards design was used to convert this in-person job search course to a 100% distance learning format.

Following this program, you will be able to:

  • Identify ways to convert an in-person course to an online course using backwards design and institutional resources;
  • Create a highly interactive course both in-person and online that features instruction by company representatives; and
  • Identify strategies to leverage employer relation and recruitment and incorporate company representatives and networking into a career course.
