Technical Education for the Seventies.
Presentations at the clinic focused on technical education programs under the Vocational Education Act of 1963 and the influence of the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968. The 12 presentations were grouped into three general subject areas. Four addresses discussed the emerging role of technical education, some suggestions for school-community communication, the institutional settings of technical education, and the impact of new legislation. A second group of speeches concerned the development of guidelines in areas emphasized in recent legislation: research, residential facilities, cooperative programs, and curriculum development. Summaries of discussion groups for these four areas are also included. Finally, four speeches describe the state of three new and emerging technologies: health technologies, law enforcement (police science), and aviation technology. The agenda and a list of conferees are appended. (CH)
