NRCCTE researchers and staff regularly make presentations and give papers at national and international conferences, conventions, meetings, and special invited sessions.


On February 27th, approximately 140 educators gathered at the South Penn campus of Moore-Norman Technology Center to hear from national and state experts as they spoke on rigorous programs of study. Robert Shumer, a research associate/lecturer at the University of Minnesota and a participant in the NRCCTE's original National Programs of Study Institute (NPOSI), kicked off the summit, sharing a national perspective with attendees. Presenters included ODCTE staff as well as participants from the Oklahoma Programs of Study Institute.

Nearly all students in high school take CTE coursework, and most students in community colleges major in career-oriented/CTE programs. This presentation highlighted research-based evidence demonstrating the power of CTE to get students engaged in learning, improve their academic and technical achievement, raise high school graduation rates, and promote students' successful transition into and completion of community college career programs.

This keynote address from the 2013 National Technology Centers That Work Leaders’ Forum, Technology Centers of the Future, describes the NRCCTE's evidence-based curriculum integration models-- Math-in-CTE, Literacy-in-CTE, and Science-in-CTE.

This presentation from ACTE's VISION 2012 describes collaborative work by the NRCCTE and SREB to develop an induction program for new or current CTE teachers. The session described how this model can provide powerful professional development support for new and existing teachers in your state, district, or school.

In this presentation made at ACTE's VISION 2012 meeting, Jim Stone presented the latest secondary and postsecondary academic and technical student outcome data and findings derived from the NRCCTE's groundbreaking longitudinal studies of programs of study/career pathways.
