The Future of NAITTE: Honoring the Past, Understanding the Present, Embracing the Future
Self, Mary Jo
Journal of Industrial Teacher Education, v43 n1 p61-67 Spr 2006
In this article, the president of the National Association of Industrial and Technical Teacher Educators (NAITTE) responds to Charles Gagel's 2006 article recapping and comparing the 1993 and 2004 surveys of NAITTE membership. As they contemplate both of these surveys, she urges members to ask themselves a few questions: What are the characteristics of the past they should honor? What can they learn from the present? What parts of the future should they embrace? Here, she comments on the past, present and future of NAITTE, with the intention not of criticizing, but of prodding members to think about its future as an organization. Some important points to ponder include: (1) the possibility of consolidation with similar organizations; (2) continuation of publications; and (3) organizational changes.
