Welcome to the New (and improved) AVTE Web Site!

We have been working very hard to get this new web site up and running.  Most of the site content has been moved over already.  However, you might find a page or two that is still being tweaked.  It will be very important to check back often because this site will be updated on a much more regular basis.  A lot of the information will be featured on the members only page.  Once you log in you will automatically be directed to that page.  Please feel free to email feedback and suggestions to the AVTE Webmaster.  We really appreciate your patience during this transition period.

Congratulations to our 2015 AVTE Scholarship winner!

Heather Andrews, RVT, from the Pima Medical Institute, California.

Issue No. 2  – Theme, Curriculum and Instruction 
‘Curriculum and Instruction’ manuscripts should discuss innovative and successful programs or practices. Current educator forums across disciplines identify curriculum as a framework/design for learning that guides instruction and assessment and is discipline specific; instruction is the method or way of teaching, how educators deliver the curriculum to the students.
