Todd Kelley, associate professor of engineering/technology teacher education, and graduate student Euisuk Sung have been invited to present at the Korean Technology Educators Association (KTEA)’s winter conference, which is an annual meeting for all Korean technology educators and teachers.
Kelley will present in the January 18 general session as a keynote speaker at Chungnam National University, Daejeon. The keynote presentation includes international research trends and challenges facing technology education within STEM education. In addition, Kelley will provide personal reflections from his Road Trip to Innovation, which refers to his sabbatical travels to Silicon Valley technologies companies, Stanford, and other engineering colleges in the East. He will share five lessons learned to prepare the next generation of technologists.
Before and after the conference, Kelley and Sung will provide two teacher professional development workshops for Korean in-service and pre-service teachers. They will address a Design Thinking workshop to inspire Korean technology teachers to adopt effective and practical teaching techniques based on the recent research outcomes. In addition, they will hold a pre-service teacher workshop where presenters will introduce international research trends and challenges for the field of technology education.
KTEA is the professional organization for technology educators and scholars to promote K-12 technology education within general Korean education.
