During Fall 2019, Renée Welch was one of 15 U.S. higher education administrators who participated in Fulbright’s International Education Administrators Seminar in Berlin, Germany. In order to address a shortage in Colorado’s workforce talent pipeline, Colorado’s Workforce Development Council has developed initiatives to enhance work-based learning modeled after Swiss and German systems of education. Renée participated in the program to discover how work-based learning is integrated into systems of education in Germany. While there, Renée participated in dialogue with German university administrators, visited multiple German universities, and spoke with German government officials. During this Scholar Spotlight Renée shares her experience and connects what she learned about work-based learning to UNC and Colorado and engages audience members in conversation about how these ideas can be translated to our community.
