Stevenson Office of Career Services Debuting Career Architecture MOOC Beginning August 4
Stevenson University’s Office of Career Services will offer an “Introduction to Career ArchitectureSM” MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) beginning Monday, August 4.
The free course is self-paced and is comprised of voice-over PowerPoint and video presentations, PDF and web-based readings, discussion boards where the participants can interact with others, and interactive evaluations. Each element of the course is aimed at familiarizing individuals with Stevenson’s award-winning Career Architecture process. It is particularly geared for school counselors and other career professionals, and, after completion of the course, participants will be able to conceptualize how certain components of the model may be applicable to their own populations.
“In developing and implementing Career Architecture, we are providing our students with a holistic model of career management for a lifetime,” said Anne Scholl-Fiedler, Vice President of Career Services. “The process of Career Architecture can be applied throughout their professional careers as they navigate changes in their own self-awareness and the economy.”
