National Conference on Research in Industrial Arts. Final Report. Leadership Series 20.
Suess, Alan R.
The purpose of this 3-day conference was to review relevant completed research in industrial arts and to identify priority research areas. It was attended by 15 teacher educators from universities which offer doctoral programs and three representatives from the Center for Vocational and Technical Education. During the opening day, completed research was reviewed through presentations by individuals. The second day was devoted to the identification of research needs, and on the last day these needs and methods for achieving the research goals were discussed. Included is a three dimensional "Model of a System Analysis for Classification of Research in Industrial Arts" which was developed at the conference, covering inquiry methods, educational processes, and student groups. Content selection, instructional factors, and instructional evaluation emerged as recommended research areas. The appendix includes a discussion and annotated bibliography of staff and nondegree research, an analysis of "Review and Synthesis of Research in Industrial Arts," and an annotated bibliography of 336 doctoral theses from 1955-1968.
