I3 Conference

On October 18, Oklahoma Tech Prep will hold the I3 Conference in the Tuttle Seminar Center at the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education in Stillwater.

Integration, Innovation and Imagination is the theme of the day and we will discuss how Tech Prep activities can be continued and how we can build relationships with Carl Perkins consortia.

The day will include time with your local Carl Perkins coordinator and college partner. Please invite them and have them save the date as well.

More details will come as we get closer to the conference. We can work together to ensure that the progress made under Tech Prep since 1991 can be continued without Tech Prep in 2012 and beyond.

Workforce Partners Conference

Today I had the opportunity to present with two others at the Oklahoma Workforce Partners Conference.

We had a great time and shared some great information with the people in attendance. It was also an opportunity to design a new presentation with the input of two other people and a different agency entirely.

Hope you enjoy it, there is some new information that I have never had in a presentation as well as some new ways at looking at information that we share as often as we can.

We even shared a little on the history of Cinco De Mayo!
