The NRCCTE produces and publishes videos that highlight and explore issues of urgency to both the field of CTE and the nation’s higher education system, recovering economy, and evolving labor market, addressing such topics as programs of study/career pathways, curriculum integration of CTE and academic content knowledge and skills, postsecondary student retention and completion, and professional development for educators in the areas of data use for program improvement and support for alternatively certified CTE educators.


One important way CTE is focusing on education reform is through attention to data-driven instructional techniques for improving and focusing instruction on what matters most. In the 2011-2012 school year, the NRCCTE will offer CTEDDI (Career and Technical Educators using Data-Driven Improvements) to states as a technical assistance option.
