Butler Community College hosted the annual Kansas Council for Workforce Education (KCWE) on Nov. 2 at the college’s El Dorado campus. More than 50 individuals who work in community colleges throughout Kansas attended this event. The keynote address was given by Steve Woolf who spoke of the “7 or So Habits of Highly Effective but Stressed-out Educators.” Woolf, a Claflin, Kan. native, is the superintendent of schools in Woodland Park, Colo. More than 20 individuals attended the pre-conference on Thursday evening. Austin Estes, senior policy associate at Advance CTE, spoke during the pre-conference about connecting more learners with high-quality career technical education.
KCWE provides practical and professional development for educators in career and technical programs. In addition to the keynote speech, there were more than nine breakout sessions. Some of the topics included using web tools for assessment, online course management and classroom management.
“This event provided a great opportunity for participants to connect and learn new skills,” said Michelle Ruder, Director of BETA at Butler. “It was wonderful to be able to host this dynamic event on our campus.”
