Continuous Career Education: Models for Examination.
Ralston, Sandra K., Ed.
This document includes twenty-four papers which were presented at the Third National Conference on Career Education in Detroit, Michigan, held March 9-10, 1978. The first five papers which were presented at the general sessions deal with the theory of career education as addressed by educators and government officials. The remaining 19 papers which were presented in group discussions describe various approaches to continuous career education in postsecondary institutions. Overall, the conference papers point out two significant facts: (1) colleges and universities must respond to the needs brought about by the increasing rate of change in society which requires that persons be able to constantly renew and upgrade skills for their existing jobs and be prepared to change careers several times in their lives; and (2) postsecondary institutions must seek additional groups to serve since the number of eighteen-year-olds is declining.
