COTRELL, CALVIN J.; VALENTINE, IVAN E.
THE NATIONWIDE GROWTH IN TECHNICAL EDUCATION, STIMULATED BY THE DEMAND FOR GREATER NUMBERS OF TECHNICIANS, HAS BROUGHT ABOUT TREMENDOUS NEED FOR LEADERSHIP PERSONNEL. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT WAS TO PLAN, DEVELOP, IMPLEMENT, AND EVALUATE FIVE 2-WEEK LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTES IN TECHNICAL EDUCATION DESIGNED TO PROVIDE TRAINING FOR CURRENT AND POTENTIAL LEADERS IN TECHNICAL EDUCATION. INSTITUTES WERE CONDUCTED AT COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY, OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY, RUTGERS - THE STATE UNIVERSITY, UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA, AND THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS WITH THE CENTER FOR VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION, OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY, SERVING AS THE COORDINATING AGENCY FOR THE CONSORTIUM. THE MAJORITY OF THE 195 PARTICIPANTS FROM 46 STATES AND PUERTO RICO WERE EMPLOYED IN ADMINISTRATIVE OR SUPERVISORY POSITIONS AT THE STATE OR LOCAL LEVEL. THE PROJECT EVALUATION REVEALED THAT PARTICIPANTS REPORTED A GAIN IN KNOWLEDGE OF CONCEPTS IN TECHNICAL EDUCATION AND WERE GENERALLY SATISFIED WITH THE CONTENT AND OPERATION OF THE INSTITUTES. A MAJORITY OF THE PARTICIPANTS RECEIVED ABOVE AVERAGE SCORES IN APPLYING KNOWLEDGE GAINED DURING THE INSTITUTES, INDICATED PLANS FOR IMPLEMENTING CHANGES IN THEIR PROGRAMS, AND RECEIVED AVERAGE RATINGS BY INSTITUTE DIRECTORS FOR THEIR DEMONSTRATED LEADERSHIP SKILLS. INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS DEVELOPED FOR THE PROJECT INCLUDED A "COMPILATION OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION MATERIALS" AND TWO SUPPLEMENTS (VT 002 928, VT 002 930, VT 002 936). (PS)
