Passport: The Authentic Quest for Your Dream Career
Writing the career development text Passport: The Authentic Quest for Your Dream Career, was a process started by creating an interactive workshop. The workshop almost follows the book chapters listed below. Although it is customized for each educational setting.
During the learning process instructors assign the reading of each chapter to the students outside the class. The progress of the workshop is actually a flipped learning approach. There is little or no lecturing in this workshop- it is all hands on experience, focused upon the student’s creation of an identity and portfolios.
At the end of each chapter is a preparation sheet to be filled out before coming to the next session, so with younger students you are assured that they’ve read the material.
