Long Beach, CA, March 18, 2012 —

At the Council on Technology Teacher Education's annual business meeting at the ITEEA’s Long Beach conference (March 15-17), the council voted to officially change its name to the: Council on Technology and Engineering Teacher Education (CTETE).

In 2010, The International Technology Education Association (ITEA) officially changed its name to the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA). This change was predicated on the evolving field of technology education and its increased role in delivering the “T’ & “E” of K-12 Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology (STEM) education.

After the name change of the ITEA, the council began scholarly discussions about its mission and changing its name to reflect current practices in the field of technology education. In January and February 2012, electronic “name change ballots” were sent to all current and life members of the council. With a 58% response rate to the ballot, 74% of the membership voted to change the name to the Council on Technology and Engineering Teacher Education (CTETE). At the conclusion of the 2012 ITEEA conference, the new name became official.

The council’s new web address is www.ctete.org
