THE FLUID POWER INSTITUTES--A PILOT PROGRAM FOR INTRODUCING EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES.
BAYSINGER, GERALD
A PILOT PROGRAM CONDUCTED TO TRAIN TEACHERS OF VOCATIONAL, TECHNICAL, OR INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION IN FLUID POWER WAS DESIGNED TO EXPLORE AND TRY OUT THE TECHNIQUES OF INTRODUCING A NEW TECHNOLOGY INTO SCHOOLS. THE PROGRAM CONSISTED OF SEVEN SUMMER INSTITUTES OFFERED AT FIVE DIFFERENT INSTITUTIONS AND PROVIDING INITIAL PREPARATION FOR 168 INSERVICE TEACHING PERSONNEL FROM HIGH SCHOOLS, VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS, COMMUNITY AND JUNIOR COLLEGES, TECHNICAL INSTITUTES, AND TEACHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS. PARTICIPANTS WERE DIVIDED INTO TEAMS FOR CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT. EACH TEAM DEVELOPED A RECOMMENDED CURRICULUM FOR THE EDUCATIONAL LEVEL OF PRIMARY INTEREST TO THAT TEAM (FOR EXAMPLE, HIGH SCHOOL, VOCATIONAL, POST-SECONDARY SCHOOL, AND TEACHER-PREPARATION). A UNIFORM FINAL EXAMINATION ADMINISTERED TO ALL PARTICIPANTS AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE INSTITUTES WAS USED TO COMPARE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF INSTRUCTORS (GUEST LECTURERS, RESOURCE PERSONS, OR FULL-TIME INSTRUCTORS). SEMINARS WERE EFFECTIVE BECAUSE THEY PROVIDED THE PARTICIPANTS WITH MATERIALS NECESSARY FOR CONFERENCES WITH THEIR SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS UPON THEIR RETURN TO THEIR TEACHING ASSIGNMENT. (TC)
