A conference this summer will help Catholic educators form teachers, students, and curricula to better present a traditional liberal arts education.
From July 11 to 14, 2013, The Institute for Catholic Liberal Education will host its 2013 forum titled "Catholic Classical Education Conference: Forming Students, Forming Curricula, Forming Ourselves." The conference will be held at the Notre Dame Retreat Center in Canandaigua Lake, New York.
Andrew Seeley, Ph.D., who became executive director of the Institute for Catholic Liberal Education 2005, will be one of the conference speakers. In addition to directing the Institute's Annual Academic Retreat for Teachers, Dr. Seeley serves on the National Policy Advisory Board of The Cardinal Newman Society's National Catholic High School Honor Roll.
Mo Woltering, another Honor Roll advisory board member, is also slated to speak at this summer's conference. Woltering is currently an instructor in the Catechist Certification and Adult Formation Program for the Diocese of Covington. His past experience includes serving as an executive director of The Cardinal Newman Society.
Other Catholic Classical Education Conference speakers include: future Wyoming Catholic College President Kevin D. Roberts, Ph.D.; CiRCE Online Classical Academy Director Brian Phillips; St. John Bosco School Headmaster Colleen Richards; St. Augustine Academy K-3 program leader Jessie Van Hecke; Saint Ambrose Academy, Inc. President David R. J. Stiennon; and St. Jerome Academy Principal Mary Pat Donoghue.
Jessie Skipwith, from Bishop Machebeuf High School in Denver, had this to say about the Catholic Classical Education Conference:
The level of organization that you brought to your presentations, the cohesive direction and confident leadership, all brought the wealth of content and scope of practice to a concise and easy to understand delivery that our faculty will benefit from for years to come.
