11th Annual VESTA Curriculum Retreat

11th Annual VESTA Curriculum Retreat

The 11th Annual VESTA Curriculum Retreat brings together industry members, VESTA instructors and VESTA Management Team members to review, revise and refine the expansive VESTA grape, wine and entrepreneurship curriculum. In addition to a thorough review of the curriculum, the focus this year will be the identification of new approaches and technologies that should be imbedded in VESTA courses; identifying appropriate content and technical modules to be incorporated into the computer instructional vineyard and winery simulations; and development of targeted knowledge/skill assessment questions for competency evaluation.
