Thank you for taking the time to submit a proposal to present at the 2013 Career Clusters™ Institute. Here are your instructions.
The purpose of the Institute is to provide a venue for sharing of effective practices, ideas, and research. Ultimately our goal is to increase student success and ensure our nation’s economic growth and security. Therefore, Institute sessions should promote the use of Career Clusters™ to drive collaboration and innovation in state and local education and workforce systems.
The 2013 Institute theme is Career Clusters™: Achieving Excellence
The program will be organized into five strands; each presentation will align with one or more of the ten program of study components. Please review the intended audience and suggested topics for each strand when determining session content. Past evaluations inform us that our participants are looking for:
- Specific how-to, replicable advice that goes beyond awareness of Career Clusters™ to specific implementation strategies; and
- Interactive sessions which engage the attendee and provide collaborative discussion and/or hands-on activities.
Good to Know:You can begin this application, save and close and go back in later to complete the application if you use the same computer.
Standard AV in breakout rooms includes an LCD projector, screen, and if room size merits a microphone, we will have one in there. Laptop computers and cords are not provided.
Speakers receive a $75 discount off the general registration rate.
Sessions which show interactivity and hands-on approaches will receive precedence over sessions which provide one-way delivery of content.
Please use this feedback to guide the structure and focus of your presentation, giving careful consideration to the four strands around which the Institute will be organized.
