Oklahoma Programs of Study Institute: Moving from POS to RPOS in Oklahoma
On February 27th, approximately 140 educators gathered at the South Penn campus of Moore-Norman Technology Center to hear from national and state experts as they spoke on rigorous programs of study. Robert Shumer, a research associate/lecturer at the University of Minnesota and a participant in the NRCCTE’s original National Programs of Study Institute (NPOSI), kicked off the summit, sharing a national perspective with attendees. Presenters included ODCTE staff as well as participants from the Oklahoma Programs of Study Institute.
The summit is the result of more than a years’ worth of planning, research and development. The Department of CareerTech was an active participant in the NRCCTE’s first NPOSI, which began in January 2012. Using the national model, ODCTE developed an Oklahoma Programs of Study Institute to help local institutions move from programs of study to rigorous programs of study.
