The Instructional Leaders group consists of technology center campus directors, assistant superintendents, site directors and other school administrators, but membership in this group is open to any CareerTech Educator. ODCTE staff and higher education representatives are also members. The Instructional Leaders group informs members on current developments, policies, sharing of best practices, and issues along with their implications on career and technology education. They elect officers to lead this group, and they determine program planning and professional development opportunities based on member feedback.

New Directions Online/Distance Learning:
Dr. Steven Aragon, Equity/Diversity Specialist, has shared resources from a book he edited back in 2002 on online/distance learning. The New Directions series was intended to have more of an application focus rather than research focus so they may offer some ideas. While technology has certainly evolved since this came out, he thinks the ideas/concepts are still applicable. Please contact Dr. Aragon if you have questions. He can provide the full citation if needed.
