Simulation Training in Planning Vocational Education Programs and Facilities. Final Report.
Meckley, Richard F.; And Others
Developed as part of a project to design, test, and disseminate simulation training materials for state leadership development, these exercises focus on developing personal and technical skills in vocational education program and facility planning. The simulation training strategy provides tryout experiences in interpersonal and other critical problem areas. The four simulated task areas in this publication are program planning, proposal preparation, site selection, and preliminary facility planning. For each exercise an introduction provides objectives, background data, and general instructions. Sample student working papers are to be used to take actions called for by the simulation exercise. An instructor's manual discusses the simulation materials, provides an instructional model to use in presenting the exercises, and suggests supplemental content. These materials were pilot tested with a class of graduate interns in vocational education at a state university. An earlier publication in this series, featuring the development of supervision and decision-making skills, is available as VT 010 277 in the July issue of "Research in Education." (SB)
