CTE Teacher Development and Innovation
KCCTE is a newly developed center in the state of Kansas created with the purpose of providing technical and professional development for Career and Technical Education (CTE) instructors.
KCCTE has the following four objectives:
- Provide technical workshops at a reduced cost to Kansas CTE instructors. These workshops will offer CTE instructors professional development opportunities to practice industry skills within their occupational area.
- Provide a resource sharing website at no cost to Kansas CTE instructors. These resources will allow CTE instructors to collaborate and share educational resources with others within the same occupational area. Resources may include lesson plans, classroom management tips, and organizational tools.
- Provide professional mentorship at no cost to Kansas CTE instructors. This service will assist CTE instructors in transitioning to their professional role. KCCTE faculty will mentor new teachers upon request.
- Provide Technical Teacher Education coursework to Kansas CTE instructors. This coursework is specifically geared toward assisting CTE instructors in acquiring their professional education skills and credentials. This coursework will continue to be the quality instruction that the PSU Technical Teacher Education program has been providing in the past.
