All 16 Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) colleges are committed to creating Intentional Networks Transforming Effective and Rigorous Facilitation of Assessment, Collaboration, and Education (INTERFACE). INTERFACE received a Round Three TAACCCT grant from the U.S. Department of Labor. INTERFACE is a strategic alignment between colleges, nationally-recognized leaders in education, statewide educational systems, workforce development systems, current TAACCCT grant recipients, and businesses to strengthen computer skill competencies, and expand pathways in information technology-related programs to TAA-eligible, veterans, and other adult learners. One of the strategies being implemented by INTERFACE is work-based learning. This brief focuses on the service learning program developed by Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC) to provide its students with hands-on work-based learning.
