Content Contributors and Partners wanted to support Web professional jobs and education
WebProfessionals.org seeks community involvement from practicing Web professionals and partners to support the Web Professional Jobs and Career Guide initiative.
What is the Web Professional Jobs and Career Guide initiative all about?
Leading Web professionals with expertise in Computer Science, Art, Web and Interactive Design, Business and Education have come together to collaborate on a new initiative that will help support students to enter into the Web profession.
The goal of the Web Professional Jobs and Career Guide initiative initiative is to support students and teachers with resources and a education ecosystem that is able to refresh itself with technology and design talent, creative thinkers and entrepreneurs. The membership supported WebProfessionals.org organization is pleased to announce the formation and the Web Professional Jobs and Career Guide initiative to foster Web professional jobs and careers.
Why is this important?
The initiative is responding to a crisis of record unemployment, a higher than average drop out rates and global government studies predicting a significant shortage of technology and New Media professionals within the next three to five years. The new initiative is designed to address the shortage of technology professionals and to answer the question, “Why Consider a Career in the Web Profession?”
How will we accomplish our goals?
The Web Professional Jobs and Career Guide initiative initiative willprovide student and teacher resources that will support students in the classroom. It also will:
.Develop an effective communication strategy to articulate why interdisciplinary education is good for business, commerce, competitiveness and jobs
.Collaboration: Improve collaboration between practicing Web professionals and those that teach Computer Science, Art and Digital Design and Business departments within secondary and higher education
.Improve collaboration between K-12, community colleges, 4-year colleges an universities, business and government
.Aggregate an effective advocacy effort with state and national policy makers on behalf of the Web professional community in communities around the globe
.Deploy relevant, workable, accessible instructional design strategies for learners (traditional and online methods) in partnership with education including high schools, community colleges and universities
