Date & Location: AUGUST 5-8, 2018 – Davenport Grand, Spokane WA

Hosted by Washington ACTE and Endorsed by Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

Both SPRING & SUMMER Conferences will focus on Best Practices: Innovation, Integration and Implementation for CTE…STEM & Arts

Purpose: An interactive conference(s) to engage individual educators, schools, and community members. Specific STEM & Arts breakout sessions of today’s best practices to integrate Career and Technical Education (CTE) with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) & Arts for all students. This will also be an opportunity for elementary educators to strengthen their STEM & Arts abilities for their younger students.

Target Attendees:  Every educator who is responsible in delivering CTE, STEM, and Arts to their students and any staff who need STEM Clock Hours (K-12).
 
Objectives: The intent of this conference format is for attendees to take what is learned back to their programs in every course and grade level in a meaningful way.  We are asking for all presenters to provide in a “MAKE and TAKE” format for attendees to put their learning into action.
 
Goals:
  • Strengthen the ability for local school districts to provide skill-based and project-based programs to support economic development in their communities and state.
  • Improve and expand business and industry connections to support local school improvement efforts to provide meaningful career development opportunities for students. 
  • Provide an opportunity for participants to network for improved student learning in CTE, STEM, and the Arts.
  • Discover instructional strategies and assessment practices for CTE, STEM, and the related Arts programs.
  • Tools to advocate for improved CTE, STEM, and the Arts programs through expanded leadership, supervision, mentoring, and/or coaching.
  • Understanding of how CTE, STEM, and the Arts align with and support K-12 frameworks and curriculum alignment.
