“Workforce for a Global Economy: Train the Technical and Vocational Trainer Conference”
Date: September 9-13, 2019
Location: Houston, Texas USA
If students are to graduate prepared to for work in a global economy, they must have the workforce readiness skills that will allow them to work on international teams and with people from diverse backgrounds. This session will help you return home and train educators on what the skills of global competence are, how they link to TVET career pathways, and how to start integrating global content into what is already being taught in TVET classrooms.
About the Workshop
If you’re like most higher education professionals, you don’t pursue excellence for its own sake – you pursue it because you want to affect the lives of your students.
There’s simply no better place than The Workforce Readiness for a Global Economy: Train the Technical and Vocational Trainer Conference to explore and celebrate your commitment to the art and science of teaching.
This 7-day event presents the newest thinking on improving teaching and learning. Meet and network with like-minded colleagues, and learn from innovators whose presentations showcase the proven methods and approaches that they’ve used with their students.
In cooperation with Texas Southern University College of Continuing Education, Americas Empowerment Institute deliberately designs a wide-ranging focus in our program to provide choices and variety that will appeal to our very mixed audience. We also plan a participant-only track within the program to offer opportunities for participants to work with other participants on issues of special interest to them. We hope you will join us for a rich and substantive workshop in gorgeous Southwest. When you leave the conference you should be able to:
- What skills are necessary for success in the global economy?
- Why are global skills critical for TVET programs?
- Why is global competence important for jobs in my local community?
- How does teaching through a global lens align to the standards I’m teaching?
- How can I begin to make local connections to global issues in my TVET courses to more deeply engage my students?
The Conference is a flagship event, dedicated to teaching and learning. Educators and administrators of all disciplines and experience levels leave the event with actionable ideas and insights that they can start implementing right away.
