Upcoming Webinar on Individualized Learning Plans

May 16th 1:30-3:00pm ET – Using Individualized Learning Plans to Increase College & Career Readiness of All Students

The Institute for Educational Leadership, which houses NCWD/Youth, is hosting a webinar that will highlight key findings from NCWD/Youth’s research on the use of Individualized Learning Plans (ILPs).  An ILP is both a document and a process that a student uses – with support from school counselors, teachers, and parents – to define their career goals and postsecondary plans in order to inform the student’s decisions about courses and activities throughout high school. Many states have adopted policies that require all students to use ILPs starting in middle school as a way to personalize learning and increase college and career readiness. With funding from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy, NCWD/Youth has conducted longitudinal research to determine whether and how ILPs could be considered as a promising strategy for developing college and career readiness. In addition to sharing research findings, webinar presenters will recommend actions for educational leaders at the state and local levels interested in successful transitions of youth from adolescence to adulthood. Webinar presenters will include:

Dr. V. Scott Solberg, Associate Dean of Research, Boston University School of Education

June Sanford, Connecticut State Department of Education

Mindy Larson, Senior Program Associate, Center for Workforce Development, Institute for Educational Leadership
