Audience: Industry, educators, community, mixed
Dr. Fleming’s inspiring presentation discusses new paradigms and tangible action steps for career and technical education to help all students gain a competitive advantage. Technical skills are the new currency in the 21st century, but how do we balance preparing students for both higher education and the workforce? Producer of the viral animated video Success in the New Economy, he will make a clear case for students to explore career choices early, make informed decisions when declaring their college education goal, and consider technical skill acquisition and real-world application in tandem with a general education. Finally, his new video will both invigorate and challenge the evolution of career readiness.  Are you ready to pivot?

Audience: CTE Educators

For years you have forged partnerships, created pathways, and developed programs…yet we still have empty seats in our classes. Many career & technical educational programs remain the “alternative” or “safety” option. Why doesn’t everyone just “get it” already? While we balance preparing students for both higher education and the workforce, it is time to shift our messaging. We need to (re)define the goal and (re)examine why the tipping point still has not yet occurred towards pathways, industry credentials, career readiness, and the pursuit of gainful employment. It’s time to become their first choice.

We all know a 4-year degree may lead to economic prosperity and opens many doors for our students.  However, we also know that the university pathway isn’t for everyone. Technical skills are the new currency in the 21st century and they make all students more competitive. But how do we balance preparing students for both college and the workforce? Dr. Kevin Fleming will present data and a new animated video in a way that both invigorates and challenges the evolution of career readiness, counseling, and educational planning. It is time to reexamine what questions we should be asking of our students, and of ourselves, to maximize student success.
