ATE Events — November 2022


Arrowwood Resort & Conference Center2100 Arrowwood LnAlexandriaMN56308

The CTE Works! Summit is Minnesota's largest conference convening everyday leaders in Career and Technical Education (CTE) across the full spectrum of education and workforce systems. This annual event is where participants reimagine college and career readiness and workforce development through conversation, innovation, and shared best practices.

Disability Cultural Centers are an innovation on the rise within higher education. This webinar will describe the role of Disability Cultural Centers on campuses, the benefits they offer students, and how they differ from the disability office that is tasked with student accommodations. The presenter will highlight recent research and share practical strategies for institutions that may not yet be in the position for a Center at this time, but are interested in building disability culture on campus. Inclusive practices on how to embrace disability culture regardless of your role on campus will guide the discussion. 

The Supercharge Your Professional Learning minicourse is a three-part webinar series designed for educators who are looking for effective ways to design and lead professional development initiatives.

Engage in interactive live sessions and problem-solving office hours with Nicole Tucker-Smith, co-author of the book Supercharge Your Professional Learning. With a compelling health-and-wellness analogy, this course will provide concepts and tips for designing professional learning that refuels rather than fatigues. Together, we'll explore ways of designing effective professional development and removing barriers to adult learning.

Participants in this minicourse will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of how the UDL Guidelines support adult learner variability and reduce barriers in professional learning.
  • Apply insights, concepts, strategies, templates, techniques, and materials to design and provide impactful professional learning experiences.
