VOCATIONAL EDUCATION RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT COORDINATING UNIT FOR THE STATE OF OREGON.
RYAN, T.A.
A FINAL REPORT WAS GIVEN ON THE ACTIVITIES OF THE OREGON RESEARCH COORDINATING UNIT FOR THE 18-MONTH PERIOD FROM JUNE 1, 1965 TO NOVEMBER 30, 1966. THIS RESEARCH COORDINATING UNIT (RCU) WAS ESTABLISHED TO IMPLEMENT THE COORDINATING EFFORTS RELATING TO RESEARCH AND PROGRAMS OF EDUCATION AND TRAINING IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION. A TWO-FOLD PURPOSE WAS DEFINED FOR THE UNIT--(1) TO STIMULATE QUALITY RESEARCH AND (2) TO IMPLEMENT RESEARCH FINDINGS IN INNOVATIVE PROGRAMS OF EDUCATION AND TRAINING. FOUR OBJECTIVES OF THE UNIT WERE (1) TO IDENTIFY RESEARCHABLE PROBLEMS IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND ESTABLISH RESEARCH PRIORITIES, (2) TO STIMULATE QUALITY RESEARCH IMPLICATIONS FOR VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND UPGRADE RESEARCH COMPETENCIES OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATORS, (3) TO DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES AND PROCEDURES OF INFORMATION DISSEMINATION, AND (4) TO FACILITATE IMPLEMENTATION OF RESEARCH FINDINGS IN INNOVATIVE AND EXEMPLARY PROGRAMS OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING. ACTIVITIES WERE DEFINED TO ACCOMPLISH THE FOUR MAIN AIMS. AN EVALUATION OF THE RCU WAS MADE TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE GOALS DEFINED FOR THE UNIT WERE APPROPRIATE AND TO ASSESS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ACTIVITIES IN TERMS OF ACHIEVING THE MAJOR AIMS. RESULTS INDICATED GENERAL AGREEMENT THAT THE GOALS WERE APPROPRIATE AND SHOULD BE RETAINED AS MAJOR AIMS OF THE UNIT. SOME OF THE ACTIVITIES WERE RATED AS HIGHLY IMPORTANT FOR ACHIEVING AIMS, OTHERS WERE CONSIDERED UNIMPORTANT, INEFFECTIVE, OR LESS RELEVANT. EVALUATION DATA WERE USED AS THE BASIS FOR PLANNING THE RCU CONTINUATION PROGRAM. (TC)
