Hoerner, James L., Ed.; Austin, Gary L., Ed.
The workshop reported here was held to allow key personnel from secondary education and community colleges in Virginia an opportunity to explore existing problems as well as potential strategies relating to improved articulation of vocational programs at both levels. The content is presented in three parts. The first contains the three major addresses: "Making a Mesh of Vocational Education," by David S. Bushnell; "Articulation, Road Map to Employability," by Richard Carlson; and "Two Plus Two Equals Four or More?" by W. Robert Sullins. The next part presents the following three out-of-state articulation models: urban model at Milwaukee Area Technical College, Wisconsin; suburban model at Williamsport Area Community College, Pennsylvania; and rural model at Coosa Valley Vocational Technical School, Georgia. The last part summarizes three small group activities on problem identification, strategy identification, and identification of workable strategies. The appendixes include information pertaining to the following: pre-workshop problem identification activity, small group assignments, small group activities, articulation problems and strategies identified during small group activities, workshop program, bibliography on articulation, and the names of State Steering Committee members, workshop planning committee members, and workshop participants.
