Alternative Careers for Educators. A Workshop Presented by Pi Lambda Theta's Iota Chapter at Indiana University.
Kiewitt, Eva L., Ed.
This document summarizes a workshop to assist persons considering preparation in education to realistically look at the use of the wide range of skills and competencies developed in a teacher education program. The first section is an introduction that discusses the purposes of the workshop. The second section is the keynote address, A Look at Yourself, by Claudia Crump. She emphasizes the need for an individual to consider personal skills, interests, and characteristics in determining possible work objectives. Section 3 summarizes a panel discussion by persons with preparation for teaching who work in alternative careers, illustrating how skills learned in education were viable elsewhere. Alternatives are discussed in these fields: communications, government agencies, business, social service, and youth agencies. The final section contains summaries of discussion groups on various topics regarding alternative careers for educators. Titles include (1) Alternative Jobs within Education, (2) Job Alternatives Outside Education, (3) Developing Skills for Job Seeking, (4) Continuing Education for Graduates (specifically at the School of Continuing Studies at Indiana University), and (5) Funding Sources for Grants.
