Preconference Educational Research Program in Art Education. Final Report.
Woodruff, Asahel D.
The National Art Education Association (NAEA) conducted four Research Training Programs immediately preceding each of the 1968 NAEA Regional Conventions. The combined number of participants for all training programs was 194, composed of persons involved in elementary, secondary and university teaching, and in supervision and administration. The Project Director was assisted by four staff members at each training location. Instruction was planned to orient the participants toward the importance of developing researchable objectives by giving them a concentrated introduction to the phases of such an undertaking. The three principal objectives were for the participants to become able to (1) identify behavioral and conceptual objectives for art education, (2) write both objectives leading to unit construction and instructional processes and materials, and (3) identify and produce component parts of a unit and thus make these objectives operational for instruction and evaluation. The results of the participant performance indicated that the program objectives were successfully achieved. The project staff recommends the continuation and expansion of this type of training for art educators. (Author/DL)
