Opening the Black Box: Addressing CTE Industry Teacher Retention
April 17, 9:00 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Cost: $225
Lunch provided

Facilitator: Michelle Conrad, University of Central Missouri

Career and technical education (CTE) teachers coming from industry bring experience to the classroom, but also have unique needs as new teachers. This interactive workshop will explore a “needs checklist” for working with industry teachers with a focus on strategies that can be used to address common retention issues, such as classroom management, assessment practices and communicating with students and parents. Prior to the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to select the most important resources needed for working with industry teachers, and the workshop will be adapted to explore resources in those areas. Participants, whether an administrator, new teacher educator or teacher from industry, will leave this workshop with a needs checklist and resources for working with this unique teacher population.
