Effective Partnerships: Communication and Collaboration, Professional Practice (CTE Series 2)

Recorded September 2019

Secondary Career and Technical Education (CTE) has long been a viable pathway for developing the skills of students with disabilities and preparing them for the future. Changes in Perkins V and an increasing emphasis on college and career readiness for all students are bringing the needs of students with disabilities to the forefront of the CTE conversation.

You will learn collaboration, communication approaches, and needed professional development in order to support CTE for students with disabilities. Strategies for building relationships between special education and CTE professionals will also be provided.

Be sure to catch all five webinars in this CTE Webinar series sponsored by Penn State University's Workforce Education program, the National Technical Assistance Center on Transition: the Collaborative (NTACT:C), and the Association for Career & Technical Education (ACTE).
