Advancing the STEM Workforce through STEM-Centric Career Development
Feller, Rich
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v71 n1 p6-12 Sep 2011
Preparing for the future is not what it used to be. Yet, advising students, preparing lessons, and promoting the value of STEM options remains constant. As a result, technical and engineering educators seek clarity about the future of careers, career development, and ways to promote STEM options. Recently, the ITEEA conference allowed the author to speculate about the importance of a STEM-Centric Career Development perspective. As ITEEA members prepare students for the success skills needed within a "skills bias" workplace, taking a STEM-Centric view can prove helpful. This article offers insights about the changing workplace, careers, and the importance of technology and engineering educators in promoting technological literacy for all. (Contains 1 figure.)
