Designing Experiences Along the WBL Continuum

I-WIN Logo - White 20221221

In the summer of 2021, I-WIN hosted a three-part workshop series for designing experiences along the WBL continuum. The I-WIN workshops began with an overview by Pathways & Policy Manager Heather Penczak, which included a review of definitions from the Illinois Career Pathways Dictionary and an overview of resources, best practices, and community models to provide inspiration and spark thinking for attendees. Attendees then moved into breakout rooms to develop an experience that addresses the design challenge. Access the recordings and resources below.
