CTE Profiles


At the Center, we constantly strive to apply innovations of technology and learning to several real-word educational purposes.  From early childhood to adult learning, the experts at CTE seek to leverage how technology improves teaching, learning, and leading.  We are proud of the work that all members of our team conduct, and here are examples of just a few of the exciting things happening at CTE.  For more information on any of the projects you see here, or to learn more about our Center, you can contact the staff featured in these profiles directly through our staff directory, or by contacting
