Work-Based Learning Activities and Resources

While we are unable to host tours, job shadows, and other work based learning experiences this year, we are excited to offer virtual learning opportunities in an attempt to provide a continued engaging, real world experience for students!

The virtual platform has many benefits including the ability to host an unlimited number of students while showcasing a wide variety of industries across Eastern Iowa.

These engaging videos are led by employees from a multitude of companies that highlight technologies within the various industries. Please visit our YouTube channel to access these videos.


Below are some best practices in sharing this virtual experience with your students:

  • Playing the videos for students in a face-to-face classroom setting
  • Posting the videos on your Google Classroom and assigning discussion questions
  • Posting the videos on your Google Classroom and doing a face-to-face discussion/game/activity about the video(s)
  • Sharing the videos via email/newsletter with students and their guardians
  • Pushing the videos out via Career Guidance System (Xello, Career Cruising, Navigator, etc) as an assignment to students with an interest/strength in a certain industry.
