REPORT OF THE VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE SEMINARS, SUMMER 1965, AN OVERVIEW AND EVALUATION OF VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE SEMINARS PREPARED FROM STATEMENTS MADE BY MOST OF THE PARTICIPATING GUIDANCE COUNSELORS.
ANGEL, JAMES L.
FOUR VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE SEMINARS WERE CONDUCTED FOR 3 WEEKS WITH TWO SEMINARS AT THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY AND TWO AT KENT STATE UNIVERSITY. THE PARTICIPANTS WERE CERTIFICATED SCHOOL COUNSELORS ACTIVELY ENGAGED IN GUIDANCE POSITIONS IN SCHOOLS IN OHIO WHICH HAVE PROGRAMS OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION. THIS REPORT IS AN EVALUATION OF THE SEMINARS, AND THE SUGGESTIONS GIVEN SHOULD PROVIDE GUIDELINES FOR THE PERSONS RESPONSIBLE FOR CONDUCTING SUCH SEMINARS IN THE FUTURE. EVALUATION FORMS WERE SENT TO PARTICIPANTS, AND 53 PERSONS RESPONDED. THE INSTRUCTIONAL TOPIC THAT PROVED TO BE OF MOST INTEREST WAS PUBLIC RELATIONS. THE OPPORTUNITY TO WRITE REAL NEWSPAPER ARTICLES OR INFORMATIONAL BROCHURES WAS CONSIDERED AN IMPORTANT ACTIVITY. THE TOPIC OF VOCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY NEEDS TO BE CAREFULLY DEFINED, PRESENTED, AND DISCUSSED DURING THE SEMINARS. ONE CRITICISM WAS THE OVERLAPPING OF CONTENT BY SEVERAL DIFFERENT SPEAKERS. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT THE DAILY SCHEDULE BE VARIED SO AS NOT TO KEEP THE PARTICIPANTS IN REGULAR CLASSROOM SESSIONS TOO LONG. THE NUMBER OF FIELD TRIPS SHOULD BE INCREASED. MORE TIME SHOULD BE PROVIDED FOR THE GROUP MEMBERS TO EXCHANGE IDEAS ABOUT THEIR OWN PROGRAMS. ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS AND EVALUATIONS ARE INCLUDED. CONCERNS LISTED BY COUNSELORS PRIOR TO THE SEMINARS AND THE EVALUATION FORM ARE INCLUDED IN THE APPENDIX. (PS)
