- “Career and Technical Education: Driving Regional Economic Development” (Thursday, 2:15 pm): Success in the emerging economy is the presence of talent in the workforce, and career/technical education can be even stronger drivers of economic development. This session demonstrates how CTE can drive regional competitiveness within a career pathways model and by utilizing robust automated tools to analyze labor market information.
- “A Demand-Driven Approach to Planning and Implementing a Regional Career Cluster Initiative” (Friday, 9:15 am): The career cluster framework has been shown to motivate and engage students by linking the classroom to the workplace. As educators consider the implementation of clusters, several key questions should guide their discussion. What are the high-wage, high-growth career clusters in the region? What pathways and occupations should be targeted so that student’s interests align with the needs of the economy? This session covers the data required to plan and implement a demand-driven career cluster initiative.
