So… How can we as CTE professionals meet these needs?
give students an opportunity to master curriculum skill sets in a work place learning environment; give instructors an opportunity to be creative in how they deliver the curriculum; require students to be accountable for documenting their own learning, by collecting evidence of content mastery through portfolio integration; and open additional lines of communication between: instructors, students and/or business and industry by participating in onsite B&I inspections.
