Now Recruiting for the Summer 2018 CTE Virtual Institute


Now Recruiting for the Summer 2018 CTE Virtual Institute

Last fall, Advance CTE launched the inaugural Career Technical Education (CTE) Virtual Institute, a web-based course designed to help new audiences become experts on CTE. Participants learned about the history of CTE, addressed common myths and recognized the role they play in supporting a high-quality CTE system.
By the end of the course, each participant also designed and delivered an individual project demonstrating and applying lessons learned. Personal projects included:

  • Developing brochures for guidance counselors that use research-based messages for recruiting students into CTE programs;
  • Publishing a blog post featuring Advance CTE Excellence in Action award winners;
  • Developing a curriculum for a 9th grade career exploration course; and
  • Submitting conference proposals for a statewide CTE conference.

The CTE Virtual Institute provided the space for professionals to come together and collectively unpack the core components of a high-quality CTE system.
Today, we are excited to announce that we are recruiting a second cohort to participate in the Summer 2018 CTE Virtual Institute. The summer course will begin in mid-July and conclude in early September. New this year, participants will be able to engage directly with the foremost thinkers in the field through a series of “brown bag” calls with CTE experts.
If you are interested in joining, please apply by June 15. Otherwise, consider passing this information along to your network and/or staff. Additional details are provided below.
