What to Expect During Your CTE Online Training
When CTE Online specialists come to work with a CTE staff at a given school, district, or ROCP, they provide the following training sequences free of charge:
This orientation may take place via phone or e-mail in the week or more before a Training. During this conversation, our Specialist will cover what will be expected from you and your staff. We will request a list of participants and their respective CTE course areas so that we may be able to prepare and copy sample course outlines individual user accounts for access during the Training.
The 2.5 hour training takes place at your site with you and at least 20 participants. It is focused on accessing and modifying developing course outlines to meet individual participant's needs.
The training is split into two parts:
- Assisting participants in developing course outlines by adapting CTE Model course outlines that already exist within the site; and,
- Exploring CTE model lesson plans to identify the components of a strong instructional lesson. (If time allows, staff may then create their own lesson plan to be added to their course and shared through CTE Online.)
Follow up: Your local site leadership teams can verify the full outlines developed by their staff and elect to review and identify exceptional lesson plans submitted by the staff for us to consider for our statewide model collection.
