Funded by MTCU, Aligning and Measuring PS-TREs in the OALCF will relate new developments in digital skills – particularly PS-TREs – to the OALCF curriculum. The project will work with LBS practitioners to determine practical ways to integrate PS-TREs into classroom settings. As LBS practitioners become better versed in PS-TREs and how to incorporate them into the classroom, students will be better prepared for the complex digital skills they will need as they move forward in their goal paths.
