CCC Practices with Promise - Workforce Outcomes eShowcase

Practices with Promise - Workforce Outcomes eShowcase

Practices with Promise is a new tool provided under the Doing What MATTERS for Jobs and the Economy framework to allow you to search for and share strategies that advance student success and workforce outcomes. Here, you can submit* your Practices with Promise to help others celebrate what you have achieved and learned. Collected Practices with Promise fall into five categories. This third eShowcase announcement brings a few from the "Contextualized Content" category to your attention. Please email if you have ideas on how to make this tool more helpful to you.

"In a community college system of this magnitude, opportunities for college professionals to share student successes with each other will be to everyone's benefit!" -- Dr. Pamela Walker, Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs, California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office
