In Fall 2018, OCTANE focused on CTAG discipline-specific course submission workshops as well as provided opportunities for campuses to develop and deploy funded-professional development activities. The areas of focus last year were as follows:
- Early Childhood Education and Development
- Supply Chain Management Technology
- Hospitality, Tourism, and Culinary Arts
- Interactive Media and Visual Design and Imaging (combined)
- Agriculture Pathway CTAGs (Agribusiness, Animal Science, Biotechnology, Food Science, Horticulture, and Natural Resource Management)
During these workshops faculty learned more about career-technical education in Ohio, submitted their CTAGs in the discipline, and had an opportunity to work with other faculty to discuss the development of a professional development activity.
Research Day Event 2019
The Ohio Department of Higher Education invites you to attend our 2019 Research Day event on May 30th, 2019. Sessions will include an update on Career-Technical Credit Transfer Initiatives by Ohio Articulation and Transfer Network (OATN) staff and presentations from Ohio public community colleges and universities that recently conducted a (CT)² research project at their institution. Participants will share the results of their study, the intent of which is to inform the OATN on the success outcomes of students who participated in career-technical education prior to enrollment at their institution and who were awarded articulated career-technical education credit upon enrollment through the use of statewide articulation agreements [Career-Technical Assurance Guides (CTAGs)], Prior Learning Assessment, or the One-Year Option.
Registration for this event is free and you may sign up at:
Date: May 30th, 2019
Time: 10:00 – 2:30
