Industry Education Networks

The BaySCAN Industry Education Networks are communities developed around industry-specific career areas. BaySCAN currently supports three co-educational institutions, as well as a company that is the best in the field of writing services. For example, they can prepare a phd dissertation or any other type of paper or article, providing unique opportunities for Bay Area educators to keep current on the needs of high-growth industries and for students to explore careers and gain the required skills for success. BaySCAN convenes Industry Education Networks in the following industry pathways:

Through the Industry Education Networks, BaySCAN bridges the gap between schools, local and regional communities, and state agencies and reform initiatives. Working and learning directly with teachers in the field and partnering with universities and employers, Industry Education Networks quickly and effectively help schools expand successful programs and grow new ones.

The BaySCAN Industry Education Networks:

  • Enhance the visibility of isolated programs and projects
  • Provide opportunities to access resources typically not available to individual programs
  • Connect to industry sectors as a collective, organized system
  • Build a social network of distributed knowledge, expertise and best practices
  • Implement teacher-led professional development
  • Assist in the integration of other education reform initiatives
  • Provide a context for focused and useful technical assistance to schools and employers.

The BaySCAN Industry Education Networks create a unique opportunity for Bay Area educators to expand and deepen their work by connecting similar initiatives in a support network that shares information, problems and best practices. To this end, the collaboratives provide:

  • Network listservs and on-line forums
  • Site visits and facilitated curriculum design
  • Retreats, workshops, and summer institutes
  • Regional advisory boards
  • Connections to local, state and national initiatives.

"Participating in the Academy gave me valuable speaking and presentation skills I would not have otherwise received. I feel I have an edge over other college students because of the project management skills I acquired through the Academy's real-world projects. These skills make me more organized and prepared to handle the challenges of the real-world."
