NCCAT Hosts Third Fall Curriculum Conference

Curriculum Leaders from across the state were in Cullowhee for the NCCAT Fall Conference for Curriculum Leaders.

The North Carolina Center for Advancement of Teaching held the third NCCAT Fall Conference for Curriculum Leaders on September 11-13. Curriculum leaders from across the state joined NCCAT, a recognized national leader in professional development programming.

The agenda, based on conversations with curriculum leaders regarding essential professional development, allowed conference attendees to identify their district’s needs and give feedback concerning future NCCAT programming.

"NCCAT's Fall Conference for Curriculum Leaders is an opportunity to build and develop strong relationships with outstanding curriculum leaders in our state," explained NCCAT Executive Director Dr. M. Brock Womble. "These relationships are instrumental in developing the programming NCCAT offers during the year."

Participants were informed about the following topics: Best Practices In Leading Professional Learning; Current Educational Trends and Issues; NC Digital Learning Plan Competencies; Legislative Mandates; Math and ELA Curriculum Changes; Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS); and  Personalized Learning.

Dr. Trixie Brooks, Vance County Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, described her experience as “I thought it was a well-planned week.” She added, “It was very helpful to get together. Sometimes you feel like you are alone in the work, so it is great to know you are not alone. There was a great variety of sessions. It was good to continue to grow and learn.”
