Summary of Studies Conducted in Minnesota, 1965-67.
Pratzner, Frank C.; Faurot, Lyle
This report on research studies was compiled in an attempt to analyze, summarize, and disseminate information on the current status of research and development activities in vocational, technical, and pratical arts education. In the five-state Upper Midwest Region (Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin) a priority list of mutual, current, significant occupational education problem areas was identified. This report summarizes the research in terms of the progress it represents on the research problems outlined in the priority lists. The report also points out desirable future directions which research efforts might profitably pursue in light of last research. The summaries of the research are grouped under the areas of: (1) Philosophical and Social Framework, (2) Manpower Supply and Demand, (3) Curriculum Development, (4) Techniques and Modes of Instruction, (5) Career Development, (6) Organization Administration, (7) Staffing, and (8) Program Evaluation. Recommendations were: (1) Researchers must become more aware of the broad problem areas, (2) More adequate numbers of researchers are needed and schools should assist by making more time available, and (3) Better dissemination of research results must be done if the research effort is to be coordinated.
