UW-Stout Family and Consumer Sciences Education Program
and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction
Format - Fully Virtual with pre-recorded presenter sessions (no in-person option)
We are happy to announce that the 2021 UW-Stout Family and Consumer Sciences Education Conference will continue to collaborate with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Child Care Conference. Due to the current and changing conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic, the format of the 2021 event will be fully virtual. Over the coming weeks further details and updates about the structure of the conference will be posted as soon as finalized.
We hope this collaboration between UW-Stout and WI DPI will allow maximum participation for FCSE educators across the region. Attendance at the annual Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Child Care Conference is required for Family & Consumer Sciences educators teaching programs in Assistant Child Care Teacher [ACCT], Infant and Toddler [IT], and Child Care Teacher [CCT] skills certificate programs. Certain sessions and activities may be required if you are participating because you teach within the programs listed.
During this conference participants will be able to choose from concurrent sessions on exciting new information in the field, as well as roundtable sessions presented by classroom practitioners with curriculum ideas to use in your classroom. We intend to provide the ability to explore exhibits with the latest educational resources and materials.
Special Invitation for High School students to visit UW-Stout:
Invite your high school students interested in careers in Family and Consumer Sciences Education to attend the online conference at no cost.
PLEASE NOTE: Information about how to access the conference sessions will be emailed prior to the conference start. The presenter sessions will be available from Friday, September 24th to Friday, December 31st, 2021. CEU Certificates will be emailed out to attendees by mid-January 2022.
