This hour-long webinar is for the IR community and other practitioners who want to dig into the technical details.

This session will include examples of how researchers can help practitioners use LaunchBoard data to support improvement efforts.

Monday May 21, 2018 | 12-1: Deep Dive on the LaunchBoard for Key Talent
This hour-long webinar will provide a detailed look at the new LaunchBoard interface for sector navigators, deputy sector navigators, regional consortia chairs, and other Strong Workforce Program technical assistance providers. This session will include examples of how Key Talent have leveraged information from the LaunchBoard to support local and regional planning and point out specific features that are relevant for work in the coming year.

Onsite and Remote Training

The LaunchBoard team also supports local training by presenting through a CCC Confer webinar or video interface, or onsite (based on availability).

Using a series of common data usage scenarios like starting a new program, program review, accreditation reports, and equity planning, participants will have the opportunity to log into their own accounts to find this information and discuss their implications, with support on understanding and interpreting the information shown.

Audience: community college senior leadership, CTE faculty, deans, and program chairs

Scheduling: To ensure that the training meets college or regional needs, we use the following process:

  • Phone call to determine training objectives and audience
  • Review of a draft agenda and sample materials to ensure the training will be on target
  • Requestor sends specific communications to attendees about how to prepare for the session, including securing LaunchBoard log-ins before the training
  • Requestor secures meeting space and equipment appropriate to the training content (e.g., internet access, conference phone, or computer lab)

The Opportunity
For community colleges to become essential catalysts to California’s economic recovery and jobs creation at the local, regional and state levels.

The Strategy
Doing What MATTERS for jobs and the economy is a four-pronged framework to respond to the call of our nation, state, and regions to close the skills gap. The four prongs are:

  • Give Priority for Jobs and the Economy
  • Make Room for Jobs and the Economy
  • Promote Student Success
  • Innovate for Jobs and the Economy
