Curriculum Strand: The Evolution of Programs: Determining Viability and Processes for Revitalization
John Freitas, CTE Leadership Committee, Facilitator
Wheeler North, San Diego Miramar College
Thais Winsome, Mission College

The Strong Workforce Program has put a spotlight on the need for CTE programs to be responsive to industry needs. Whether colleges are developing new CTE programs or evaluating and updating existing programs as part of these efforts, each college must have a program viability process that is both effective and collegial.

Leadership and Governance Strand: Code Alignment Project
Toni Parsons, CTE Leadership Committee, Facilitator

Kathy Booth, WestEd

The Strong Workforce Program recommendations include the need for better data, but better data requires better language alignment. The California community colleges use Taxonomy of Programs (TOP) and System for Award Management (SAM) codes, federal education uses Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP), and labor market uses Standard Occupational Classification (SOC). Such varying terminology can make data collection inefficient and sometimes unhelpful. This session will review the Code Alignment Project and how attendees can get their colleges involved. Better data equals better programs, which equals better education for our students.

The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges is legally recognized by the Board of Governors as the representative of faculty in the formulation of state policies related to academic and professional matters. Beyond its legal role in statewide policy matters, the Academic Senate also provides support for the work of faculty at the local level through a variety of means, such as professional development resources, professional standards and guidance through its papers, and technical assistance services for local senates and curriculum committees. However, the efforts of the Academic Senate depend on faculty from local colleges becoming involved with its work. Come to this breakout session to learn more about the Academic Senate and how you can become involved in statewide work.
