Iowa’s Work-Based Learning Resources

The Iowa Intermediary Network (IIN), with the Iowa Department of Education, is continuing to create great WBL content and events. Iowa Work-Based Learning Consultant, Kristy Volesky, is sharing the following free tools and resources for fellow state leaders to share with their educators.  

The Iowa Internship Toolkit is now available on the Department’s Work-Based Learning website. Although there are a few Iowa-specific items, most of the guide is applicable outside of Iowa.  

WBL Events: The list of upcoming Spring 2022 events is available on the Iowa Intermediary Network website. All of the Business WBL events use MBA Research standards. All events are free and easily accessible. Complete a simple questionnaire, then you’ll receive an emailed link.
