UCCI's Second-Annual UCCI Conference on Integrated Curriculum!
November 4, 2014
Call for Presentations: UCCI's Second-Annual UCCI Conference on Integrated Curriculum!
Curriculum directors, principals, and other administrators implementing integrated courses: Encourage your faculty to submit a proposal to present at the second annual UCCI Conference on Integrated Curriculum!
What is the UCCI Conference on Integrated Curriculum?
The UCCI Conference on Integrated Curriculum is an annual event
organized by the staff of UC Curriculum Integration (UCCI), an initiative of
Student Affairs/High School Articulation at the UC Office of the President.
UCCI is supported by SB 1070 funds administered by the California Department of
Education, UC’s partner agency. At last year’s inaugural UCCI Conference,
attendees from districts throughout California heard from engaging presenters
who had been involved in designing and implementing courses as diverse as
UCCI’s own Algebra 2 for the 21st Century and
the UCCI-style course, Business of Music.
This year’s conference is also being designed to be an engaging and useful gathering of educators and administrators, focused on creating dialogue about the creation and implementation of integrated courses—those that combine the content and skills of academic and career technical education disciplines and meet the “a-g” subject requirements for freshman admission to UC and CSU campuses. In response to requests from attendees of the June 2014 conference, we’re expanding! This second-annual conference will host several breakout panel discussions in which attendees will hear firsthand from faculty and administrators who have successfully implemented a wide variety of courses integrating various academic subject areas and CTE sectors.
Who should submit a proposal?
Our audience of faculty, administrators and other decision-makers in districts throughout California would be interested in hearing from people who:
- have implemented one or more UCCI courses in their school or district
- have created and/or implemented integrated courses because they are or have been participating in linked learning
- have created and/or implemented integrated courses as their way of aligning curriculum to the Common Core State Standards
- employ a project-based learning approach in their schools
What's in it for you and your colleagues?
The UCCI Conference offers presenters an opportunity to:
- share your successes and "lessons learned" with others who are working to reach similar goals and overcome similar challenges
- network with colleagues from throughout California who are passionate about providing high school students with college and career preparation
- form partnerships that could benefit your school, your teachers and your students
The UCCI Conference is free to attendees, and UCCI will cover travel costs for presenters.
Date: Friday, May 15, 2015
Location: Northern California, exact location TBA
