Utah Coordinating Unit for Research in Vocational and Technical Education. Final Report.
Utah Research Coordinating Unit for Vocational and Technical Education, Salt Lake City.
The Utah Research Coordinating Unit (RCU) was established to conduct and supervise vocational research, develop research competency in the State, disseminate vocation research information, and provide help in preparing research proposals. The research needs of Utah were established by workshop and teacher briefings and interviews with district and state specialists. The RCU was involved in a total of 30 projects from July 1968 to August 1969 ranging from vocational education to rural youth to an evaluation of mobile electronics education. To aid in the development of state research competencies, the RCU encouraged graduate students and retired educational personnel to carry out needed research projects, and conducted conferences and workshops. In addition, the RCU helped persons prepare vocational education research proposals. Although the project did try to disseminate research information in vocational education, they were not able to find an efficient means of distributing the information. A description of 28 research projects is included. (BC)
