Departmental Research Center for the State Board of Vocational, Technical and Adult Education. Final Report.
Krogstad, Roland J.; Brill, Donald M.
The Departmental Research Center (RCU) of the Wisconsin Board of Vocational, Technical and Adult Education was approved to begin January 3, 1966 and continues operation under a contract and an extension to September 30, 1968. The general objectives of the unit were stimulation, coordination, and dissemination of research in vocational and technical education within Wisconsin. Major issues and problems were identified and given priorities for detailed study. These included teacher education and leadership development, the follow-up procedures, organization and administration of newly formed area vocational, technical and adult education districts, present and emerging occupations, information for program planning and development, and long-range planning. Over 300 surveys and projects were completed or commenced operation during the report period. During the final 6 months of operation, field support was accomplished in 15 of the 18 area vocational, technical and adult education districts. This organizational structure completes the line of communication and research information dissemination from the federal level through the state down to the district and local school level. (CH)
