Even More Professional Learning Opportunities at ICDC

Education is ever-changing, and DECA knows there is always an opportunity to gain new resources to enhance your teaching and chapter strategy. That’s what DECA’s new professional learning is all about – fostering a network of educators sharing the best tools for student success.

We know each chapter has a strength that can benefit another chapter. Spread your know-how with others by sharing “This Is How We Do DECA.”

DECA Inc. is excited to unveil this outlook on advisor professional learning at the International Career Development Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. We want you to gain insights directly from exceptional advisors who are utilizing DECA to help students prepare for college and career success.

The new format will consist of two full days of professional learning, with two session options every hour. Content will address the needs of both new and experienced advisors. Drop in for just one session, or put together your own two-day schedule. You drive the professional learning you’ll receive.

In order to provide classroom-ready resources at this professional learning event, we need your voice! DECA Inc. is looking for exceptional advisors who can deliver a dynamic 45-minute session or a 15-minute Cool Idea roundtable demonstrating innovative use of DECA to integrate into classroom instruction, apply learning, connect to business and promote competition. The sessions will be open to up to 200 chapter advisors at ICDC.

You can find the online application here. Proposals will be accepted until the slate is full, but the priority deadline is February 16, 2018.

Workshops can be directed to either novice or advanced advisors. Share how you use social media to promote your chapter to the community, provide strategies on helping your members select the perfect competitive event, demonstrate how you integrate DECA into your classroom instruction, or deliver a session on connecting with DECA’s National Advisory Board. Advisors presenting must be attending DECA’s International Career Development Conference. DECA Inc. will seek approval from the chartered association advisor before selecting presenters.

This is How We DECA” at ICDC is just the beginning of a new form of connecting and sharing to provide the best DECA experience for thousands of student members.
