“The ACGCs in the GOAL Post”

Introduction to the Academic and Career Guidance Content (ACGC) “Clickable Table”
The GOAL Post has been publishing articles to aid in the implementation of GOAL since 2004. Although the older articles were written in a different context, they are relevant today in the 2017 – 2018 implementation stage.

The articles were written without the benefit of the table of 44 ACGCs as it stands today, nor did we have the “Expected Student Learning Outcomes” (Outcomes) at our finger tips. Yet, virtually every article could illustrate multiple ACGCs and Outcomes.

As this table is a work in progress, please contact us if you notice errors, or if you have a suggestion for a more appropriate match between an article and the ACGC/Outcome. Or, do you have an article, or an idea for an article?

Tags on online articles published since 2013
Articles published online since March 2013 have tags at the end, which can be used to search for related articles. The tag “Diversity” for example refers to diverse learning styles; the EN Course tag is the Career Development credit course on Entrepreneurship, while the Entrepreneurship (often abbreviated as ENT) tag includes all articles related to entrepreneurship in general. Again, at the end of an article, just click the tag to get a list of related articles.
