Healthy Curriculum: Getting your curriculum into shape and keeping it that way

Curriculum is the heart of what we, as educators, do. Keeping our curriculum healthy requires our colleges to stretch, tumble, roll, drill, run, maneuver, and persevere through the curriculum race. Whether you choose to build noncredit endurance, boost Career Technical Education (CTE) potential, venture into innovative activities, or get an overview of heart-healthy curriculum, this year’s curriculum institute will explore topics intended to help everyone keep curriculum healthy in spite of the changing environment in which we live. 

This year’s event includes a pre session option designed for new curriculum chairs, CIOs, and/or curriculum specialists. However, the more seasoned curriculum enthusiast may find it beneficial as well.  Additionally, there will be a noncredit strand, a CTE strand, and a curricular innovations strand.
