Industrial Arts/Industrial Technology.
California State Colleges, Los Angeles. Div. of Academic Planning.
In the last decade, industrial arts departments have come to serve a comprehensive "industrial technology" function by giving greater attention to the technical aspects of industrial education. This comprehensive report focuses on current trends and conditions and likely future developments in industrial arts and industrial technology in the nine California State Colleges offering undergraduate programs. A section on industrial arts touches on the general education function of industrial arts at the secondary level, the expansion of college programs with attendant problems of recruitment, retention, and industrial experience and the Bachelor of Vocational Education degree. The section on industrial technology is based on the findings of an extensive survey of industry, a comparison of similar curriculums in selected institutions, the literature of the field, and the deliberations of the Consultative Committee over a period of many months. As a result, five elements of a proposed policy were developed. Twenty-two recommendations for industrial arts and technology in California state colleges are included. An extensive bibliography and related materials such as the industry survey are appended. (CD)
