Last year’s theme was Everything Under the Sun, so this year, we have the dark side planned for you; welcome to the Curriculum After Dark. The Curriculum Committee has designed a program of essential information and navigational aids, process and procedural breakouts, as well as several veins you might explore including noncredit, career technical education, and technology. Often we become blinded by the myriad facets of our tell-tale regulations and structures that we may neglect such vital pathways to the same curricular core.
Career Technical Educators Regional Meetings: Collaborative Survival
Significant restructuring of the supplementary funding that CTE programs have relied upon for survival and an emphasis on regional approaches to everything has left many in the CTE community reeling.

While current initiatives are focused on compressing timelines for student completion, it is now more important than ever to reassert our belief in a broad general education (GE) to provide our students with the tools they will need to succeed in an ever-changing global society. Join fellow community college, CSU, and UC faculty members for discussions on the value and relevance of GE at this year's Academic Academy!
