Chef Robert C. Bifulco, Culinary Arts Program Chair at Remington College – Dallas Campus, has been invited to speak at the Center for the Advancement of Foodservice Education (CAFÉ’s) 8th Leadership Conference, on June 21 through 23, 2012.
The host site for this national educators’ conference is the Culinary Institute of America, San Antonio, Texas. Chef Bifulco is among several speakers from across the country who are presenting seminars as part of a Best Practices Symposium, held in conjunction with the conference.

His presentation showcases specific techniques and practices that have had a positive outcome and can be implemented in any size or type of hospitality program.
Other slated topics for the symposium include course design, teaching methodologies, technology, “flipped learning,” student motivation, effective uses for PowerPoint, and more, all emphasizing the need for connecting with students.
Dallas Campus Director of Education Billy Ferrell said, “We congratulate Chef Bifulco for being invited to speak at this national educational symposium on culinary education and are quite proud of his recognition by CAFÉ.”
