RESEARCH TRAINING INSTITUTE FOR PERSONS IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PARTICIPATING IN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES (JUNE 13-AUGUST 12, 1966).
LAMAR, CARL F.
THIRTY SECONDARY AND COLLEGE TEACHERS, SUPERVISORS, AND TEACHER EDUCATORS FROM AGRICULTURE, HOME ECONOMICS, BUSINESS AND OFFICE EDUCATION, DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION, HEALTH, AND TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION PARTICIPATED IN AN INSTITUTE DESIGNED TO INCREASE THE RESEARCH COMPETENCE OF PERSONS IN POSITIONS OF LEADERSHIP. ALL EXCEPT ONE WERE ENROLLED FOR GRADUATE SCHOOL CREDIT. THE PROGRAM INCLUDED INSTRUCTION AND PRACTICE IN STATISTICS, RESEARCH METHODOLOGY, AND RESEARCH DESIGN. CONSIDERABLE TIME WAS USED IN PREPARING 14 PROPOSALS FOR RESEARCH, TRAINING, EXPERIMENTAL, DEVELOPMENTAL, OR PILOT PROJECTS. THE PROGRAM INCLUDED (1) 40 HOURS OF STATISTICAL INSTRUCTION, (2) 40 HOURS OF STATISTICAL LABORATORY, (3) 50 HOURS OF RESEARCH METHODOLOGY, (4) 50 HOURS OF RESEARCH DESIGN, AND (5) 100 HOURS OF LIBRARY STUDY, COMMITTEE WORK, AND FIELD TRIPS. ALL PARTICIPANTS THOUGHT THE INSTITUTE WAS WELL WORTH WHILE. THEY RECOMMENDED THAT FUTURE INSTITUTES SCHEDULE MORE TIME FOR PREPARING PROPOSALS, INCLUDE MORE PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF STATISTICS AND MORE TIME FOR THE STATISTICS LABORATORY, AND PLAN THE INSTITUTE FOR TWO SUMMERS TO INCLUDE RESEARCH METHODOLOGY, AND DESIGN THE FIRST AND A COMBINATION OF METHODS, DESIGN, AND STATISTICS THE SECOND. THE APPENDIX CONTAINS PUBLIC RELATIONS MATERIALS, AN APPLICATION FORM, A LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE, A LIST OF PROJECT TITLES DEVELOPED BY PARTICIPANTS, A BIBLIOGRAPHY, AND THE INSTITUTE EVALUATION FORM.
