Business Education Clinic March 7

TERRE HAUTE, Ind.“Furthering Excellence in Business Education” is the theme of the 63rd annual Business Education Clinic at Indiana State University Friday, March 7.

Sessions and round table discussions will be in Dede I and II of Hulman Memorial Student Union on the ISU campus.

“Our speakers will discuss topics that are very current in technology and business and how these happenings reflect in the classroom for business educators,” said William J. Wilhelm, administrative systems and business education program coordinator. “We will have sessions on teaching Microsoft Office XP and Windows XP. Barbara Beadle, the coordinator of business education for the state, will be talking about very current decisions about business curriculum. We’ll discuss personal finance and offer techniques for teaching specific content so that content for personal finance won’t be just for the teacher of a personal finance course.

“These are all very current issues in business and, consequently, in business education,” Wilhelm said.

The clinic is open to educators who teach or are involved in the teaching of business-related courses. On-site registration begins at 8:15 a.m. and costs $12. (See complete schedule of events below).

David Langley, director of ISU’s center for teaching and learning and opening-session speaker, will discuss some problems that may undermine excellence in teaching, regardless of the content and provide some possible solutions to these problems.

Other presenters will include Bruce McLaren, chairman of the organizational department at ISU; Barbara Beadle, of the Indiana Department of Education; Wilhelm and Jerry Wood of Lawrence Central High School; Aaron Gilmore and Dawn Johnston of Northwestern Senior High School; Donna McGregor, supervisor of staffing services at Manpower; Amy Hollingsworth of Blackford High School; and Mike Hackman of Columbus North High School.
