Implications for Change in Professional Development for Secondary Career and Technical Education: A Report from the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education
Secondary-level CTE is broadening its purpose from preparation for entry-level jobs to preparation for both employment and postsecondary education. This expanded purpose requires teachers who have a wider range of skills and knowledge than in the past. In this session two of the authors of the NRCCTE report examine the influences that are creating the changed context in which professional development for secondary CTE teachers operates and the kinds of learning needed to respond to this context.
