Missouri was one of three TAACCCT participants chosen to present at the Congressional Staff Network forum on Workforce and Economic Security last month in Washington, D.C.
Dawn Busick, MoWINs Grant Director discussed our progress with intrusive advising, while representatives from Sinclair College in Ohio and William Rainey Harper College in Illinois discussed competency-based education and stackable credentials. We also shared the MoWINs Innovations Report published in December, along with the final reports from MoHealthWINs and MoManufacturingWINs.
The panel also discussed employer engagement, financial aid barriers, alternative (non-term) delivery models and credit for prior learning. The goal of the presentation was to help members of congress and other leaders learn more about the successful innovations taking place as a result of federal investment in these programs.
