We are happy to announce that the 2020 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 conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic, this conference will be virtual and 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 virtual conference participants will still 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. The ability to explore exhibits will also be available with the latest educational resources and materials.
Special Invitation for High School students to visit UW-Stout:
Bring your high school students interested in careers in FCS Education. In addition to participating in the conference, high school students will have the opportunity to participate in a virtual tour of campus, visit classes, and visit with current university students and faculty.
NOTE: Information about how to access the conference session content will be emailed the week prior to the conference start. We anticipate access to session recordings and materials beyond the date of the event and options for extended access are being determined.
