Wed, 20 Jan 2016 11:25:11 CST

Current Trends in Agricultural Education Focus of 2016 National Agriculture Education Summit Hundreds of agricultural education thought leaders, higher-education executives and business professionals will converge on Indianapolis next week for a three-day summit to focus on what is trending in school-based agricultural education.

A joint project of the National Council for Agriculture Education, the National FFA Organization, and the National FFA Foundation, the 2016 National Agricultural Education Summit will be Jan. 26-28, 2016 at the Sheraton Indianapolis Hotel at Keystone Crossing.

The event will focus on trends in school-based agricultural education.

“Changes in our industry and demographics are challenging teachers to find ways to meaningfully engage all students through experiential learning. The summit brings together a variety of national leaders in agricultural education to study, debate and seek solutions to the barriers we face," said Mike Honeycutt, managing director of The Council.

Topics that will be featured during the conference include a panel on the impact of career and technical education on agricultural education; infusing agricultural education standards into programming and resources; being an advocate for agricultural education; agriculture teacher recruiting and retention; safety in the agricultural education classrooms and more.

The newly revised National Quality Program Standards will also be unveiled at the event, followed by a panel discussion on how to use on a state level.

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 629,367 student members who belong to one of 7,757 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
