The Skills Labs are a no-cost, easy method to change teacher's pedagogy from theory-based to competency-based instruction.
Skills Labs are a weekly lab (think science lab) where student-centered pedagogy is inherent in its design and focuses on interactive group work with three core components:
Build – sharing of knowledge,
Practice – a hands on opportunity to practice the skill, and
Present – where students present their work while developing presenting skills and receiving feedback.
Student Business Clubs
This student-led club allows learners to experiment with starting one or more enterprises in a team setting. The clubs provide an experiential platform for students to acquire critical 21st century and business/employability skills that will enable them to meet the demands of the labor market or create their own jobs if that market fails them.
