A Comparison of Graphic Arts Processes Practiced by Contemporary Industry with Those Taught in Industrial Arts Teacher Education.
Glogovsky, Ronald J.
Industrial education institutions were studied to determine the extent to which they are including the contemporary industrial processes in graphic arts into their curriculum for future industrial arts teachers. Questionnaires were used to gather data from 135 graphic arts industries and from 117 industrial arts teacher education institutions. Conclusions drawn were: (1) The industrial arts objective of giving insight into and understanding of industry is only partially being met, (2) Modern industrial graphic arts innovations are not completely reflected in industrial arts education institutions, (3) Teacher education institutions in large cities do not necessarily teach contemporary graphic arts processes more extensively, (4) Present procedures to obtain insight and understanding of modern industrial practices are inadequate, (5) Predominance of the lecture method of presentation indicates the lack of equipment, and (6) There is a lack of uniformity in course offerings and cocurricular content at industrial arts teacher education institutions. This Ed.D. thesis was submitted to the University of Nothern Colorado. (GR)
