Presentation Category: 
Secondary-Postsecondary Connection
Presentation Description: 
When building systems to effectively deliver CTE instruction, we cannot underestimate the importance of a common vocabulary and must question the assumption that everyone is indeed speaking the same language. To create seamless transitions between programs, shared definitions are crucial for coherent design, articulation, legislative, funding and other efforts.
