Tufts University Summer Guidance Institute on the Utilization of Occupational Education and Placement (Medford, Mass., Jul 20-31, 1970). Final Report.
Curtin, Elizabeth M.; Morine, John P.
The purposes of this institute were to (1) provide the information needed to offer vocational courses for the non-college bound handicapped and disadvantaged, (2) point out the need for remedial and psychological services, (3) increase participants' understanding of the role of the counselor in our rapidly changing society, (4) increase emphasis on placement in school and industry, and (5) improve supervision of vocational education at all levels. Five days of presentations by experts in the field were supplemented by travel to schools, special programs, industrial plants, and a career information center to show practical applications. The major value of the institute, according to the participating guidance personnel, was in familiarizing participants with new developments in vocational education, particularly preparations for emerging occupations and technological advancement. A followup evaluation showed that the institute had great impact throughout the state, as participants assumed leadership roles in implementing the new ideas. (BH)
