UC Curriculum Integration (UCCI)
The University is seeking applicants for the UC Curriculum Integration (UCCI) program aiming to develop model
“a-g” courses that effectively integrate academic rigor and career technical skills.
The UC Curriculum Integration (UCCI) Institutes bring together academic and career technical education (CTE) teachers, administrators and other experts from across California to spend four intensive days dedicated to developing courses that integrate academic and CTE content. The participants work in small teams, each team creating the framework for one course to be submitted for “a-g” approval. Once approved, these model courses can be adopted by any California high school or program.
The Spring 2013 UCCI Institutes will focus on the Health Science and Medical Technology CTE industry sector in conjunction with the language other than English (“e”) subject area and the Arts, Media and Entertainment CTE industry sector in conjunction with the history / social science (“a”) subject area. Detailed information and applications are available on the UCCI Institutes website.
Participants receive a $600 stipend and costs for registration, lodging and meals are covered by the University of California with financial support administered by the California Department of Education. Each teacher's school or district will be reimbursed a total of $250 to help cover substitute costs. UC encourages schools and districts to cover applicants' travel costs.
