Highlighted Pre Session New Tools for Beginning CTE TeachersPrint

CTE schools require industry experience of their teachers and in some cases, the tradeoff for that experience is limited preparation in teaching pedagogies. The culmination of the needs of the CTE community and current research have brought together university experts, researchers and NOCTI to produce several modules designed to provided new teachers with research based information about assessments, certifications and third party testing.

This pre-session will explain the evolution, the collaboration and walk participants through one of the 2 modules. This information could also be used as professional development information. Each participant completing this training session will be rewarded with $100.00 gift certificate for pre test use!
