Career Education Mini-Conferences. Project Performance Final Report.
Miguel, Richard J.
Twenty-seven mini-conferences on career education in grades K-12 were conducted in three phases. Two hundred sixty-one participants, representing all fifty states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia, attended the conference. Nine topical areas were considered as they apply to career education: teaching/learning processes, evaluation, counseling, business/labor/industry involvement, parent involvement, handicapped students, female students, gifted and talented students, and minority students. Phase 1 examined these topics from the practitioners' viewpoint. Phase 2 considered implications for state coordinators of career education. Phase 3 examined the topics from a national perspective as conceptualizers and executive officers of national associations made suggestions and recommendations. In addition to the mini-conferences, four meetings regarding evaluation and data collection were held for the directors of federally funded career education projects. The conference participants were asked to complete a questionnaire regarding their perceptions of the outcomes of the conferences, suggestions for improvement, and issues in need of further investigation. Most of the participants mentioned that the greatest benefits they derived from the conferences were the innovative ideas on practice, administration, and involvement of groups other than educators in career education. (This report presents a summary of data extracted from the evaluation questionnaires completed by the conference participants.) (EM)
