Michael Suchowski – Scaling Career Learning Objectives
All innovation begins with a problem. Without a problem, there is nothing to solve and therefore, nothing to innovate. Defining the precise problem to solve, however, is often the most difficult step.
Scaling career education in universities is virtually impossible with current budget and human capital restraints. Specifically, we learned that:
- A career center advisor/student ratio typically ranges from 1/400 to 1/4000;
- Career centers have 30 – 70 Career Learning Objectives (CLO’s) to offer students;
- It takes a career center counselor 15 to 30 minutes to teach one CLO to a student.
Sound familiar? Without boring you with the math, this means that a typical career center would have to increase staff 3 – 10 times to meet their students’ educational needs, and that is only if the counselor focused exclusively on teaching CLO’s, without regard to the other individualized coaching and support they’d like to offer.
