PROFILE OF ANCILLARY SERVICES PROVIDED BY BUSINESS TEACHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS IN THE UNITED STATES.
FRANK, SHELDON; AND OTHERS
A STUDY WAS MADE TO IDENTIFY THE CURRENT THINKING AND PRACTICES OF BUSINESS EDUCATION LEADERS IN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES IN REGARD TO ANCILLARY SERVICES. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE SENT TO 293 COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES AND RETURNS WERE RECEIVED FROM 175 REPRESENTING 46 STATES, THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, AND PUERTO RICO. A SUBSTANTIAL PERCENTAGE OF THE SCHOOLS CARRIED ON RESEARCH PROJECTS AND CONSULTING FUNCTIONS AND PROVIDED OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION SERVICES. TEACHING AIDS, AUDIOVISUAL AIDS, AND SIMULATION PROJECTS WERE DEVELOPED RATHER CONSISTENTLY BY A SUBSTANTIAL PERCENTAGE OF THE SCHOOLS. A MAJORITY OF ANCILLARY SERVICES WERE DISTRIBUTED FREE WITH THE EXCEPTION OF FILMS AND FILMSTRIPS. WORKSHOPS AND CONFERENCES WERE SPONSORED BY THE BUSINESS EDUCATION DEPARTMENTS IN THE FOLLOWING ORDER OF FREQUENCY--PROGRAMS FOR EXPERIENCED TEACHERS, CONFERENCES FOR SUPERVISORS OF STUDENT TEACHERS, AND CONFERENCES AND WORKSHOPS FOR FIRST-YEAR TEACHERS. OVER HALF OF THE SCHOOLS ACTIVE IN ANCILLARY SERVICES WERE IN THE SMALL CATEGORY (7,500 STUDENTS OR BELOW) AND OFFERED DEGREES BEYOND THE BACHELOR'S. THE MEDIUM-SIZED AND VERY LARGE INSTITUTIONS HAD SHOWN A VERY FAVORABLE ATTRACTION FOR BUSINESS EDUCATION MAJORS WHILE THE SMALL AND MEDIUM-LARGE WERE DEFINITELY LAGGING. THE GROWTH PATTERNS FOR INSTITUTIONS AS A WHOLE WERE AHEAD OF BUSINESS EDUCATION DEPARTMENT GROWTH PATTERNS IN ALL SCHOOL-SIZE CATEGORIES IDENTIFIED. A SUBSTANTIAL PERCENTAGE OF THE SCHOOLS INDICATED THAT BUSINESS EDUCATION CURRICULUM REVISION SHOULD BE BASED PRIMARILY ON FOLLOWUP INFORMATION ON BUSINESS TEACHER PROBLEMS, TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS, AND EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH.
