Mohawk team presents a unique approach to an international audience

A Mohawk team recently presented a unique approach to support students and trainers in a City School by Mohawk program to an international conference, Education for Democracy.

Professor and Learning Outcomes Assessment Consultant Pamela Ingleton, with Lead Assessors Allyson Conrad and Laureta Vavla, presented Leveraging the VALUE Rubrics to Support Demand-Led Microcertification in Access Education during a session at the annual conference of the American Association of Colleges & Universities. The session explored how the college’s “Material Handling 4.0” program has incorporated VALUE rubric content to enhance technical training and support learners from equity-seeking groups. Five VALUE skills provide a learning, assessment, and microcredentialing framework benchmarked and modified to align with performance expectations for entry-level employment within the material handling sector.

The team’s various uses of the VALUE rubrics have not been previously used to help guide employer skills expectations in such a rigorous way. The opportunity to share this approach and the initial results was well received.

Thanks to the presenters for so ably representing the College Student Success Innovation Centre, City School and Mohawk.
