NRCCTE at SREB researchers will be presenting and exhibiting at ACTE Vision 2015 in New Orleans, Louisiana, November 19–22, 2015.

In a paper published in Evolutionary Psychological Science, NRCCTE at SREB-affiliated researchers bring an evolutionary perspective to bear on adolescent learning and argue that applied approaches to learning like CTE can help schools work with student biases in attention and motivation, rather than against them.

SREB recently released the final report of its Commission on Career and Technical Education, which brought together legislators, educators and experts from across the United States to explore how to build career pathways that lead from high school to postsecondary education and training programs and good-paying jobs in high-demand fields.

NRCCTE staff will be presenting the latest results of the Center's research in two sessions at the Annual Conference of the American Education Research Association in Chicago, IL.

Appearing in the January issue of ACTE's award-winning Techniques magazine is a feature on work-based learning (WBL) written by Corinne Alfeld, formerly of FHI 360.
