WIDS and Rogers Public School CTE Co-Present at Arkansas ACTE Conference
If you're attending this year's annual Arkansas Association of Career and Technical Education Conference in Hot Springs, Arkansas on 7/29-31, join WIDS and Rogers Public School CTE for a presentation that will introduce CTE teachers in Arkansas to an instructional design model, process, and tool. The co-presenttion will be delivered by WIDS Learning Design Consultant Melinda Schroepfer and Dawn Stewart, Rogers Public School CTE Director on Monday, July 30th at 11:00am in Room 209 at the Hot Springs Convention Center.
In 2017, Rogers Public School CTE began developing CTE curriculum plans, align local, state and national program standards, design CTE course syllabi and lesson plans, measure CTE program outcomes, incorporate industry certifications, create career pathway documents. Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers at Rogers Public Schools in Arkansas use WIDS to develop curriculum and instructional-related documents that support each CTE program area. CTE Director Dawn Stewart says WIDS gives their schools “a framework for working collaboratively with local business and industry to design Career Pathway documents that align high school CTE programs, post-secondary programs and technical training offered by local industry.” Stewart says this helps to ensure a successful post-high school transition to college and careers. CTE teachers use WIDS to develop course syllabi, state and national standards alignment documents and career pathway documents. The curriculum management platform helps Rogers expand the avenues for sharing CTE information with students, parents, business/industry and the community.
