Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify and categorize subject matter topics presented at the annual American Educational Research Association (AERA) CTE Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings during 2005-2019. A total of 19 subject matter topics were identified that accounted for 237 peer reviewed presentations. The top eight subject matter topics presented during this 15-year period were: assessment, transition to post-secondary education, academic integration, alignment with federal education policy, best practices, professional preparation, instructional strategies, and economic impact of CTE. Emerging subject matter topics included: faculty and staff development, curricula designs, relevance of workforce standards, future CTE content, programs of study, STEM, and integration of technology. It is recommended that additional classifications be considered in future research to include equity/diversity, international CTE (i.e., global subject matter topics), and career exploration and guidance.
