2023 NetVUE Gathering at Waynesburg University: Vocational Exploration in the Classroom

September 28–29, 2023 Waynesburg University, Waynesburg, PA

Teaching Vocational Exploration in the Classroom

In the college or university classroom, instructors strive to share field-specific knowledge, build skills that will translate into modern careers, and assist students to develop their abilities through practice. Additionally, educators serve as academic advisors, career mentors, and life coaches. Among so many other responsibilities for those who teach, what role can vocational exploration play in our classrooms? This gathering will focus on providing faculty with concrete strategies for vocational exploration and reflection that can be integrated into their courses. Faculty will be encouraged to reflect on their definition of vocation, to share current practices, and to discuss innovative methods for addressing vocational exploration.

The cost of this event for those at NetVUE member institutions is $50 or $100 per person, depending on whether one or two nights’ lodging is required. (The non-member rate is $150 and does not include lodging.) Please register no later than September 3, 2023. Complete information on this NetVUE regional gathering is available on the Waynesburg University website.
