Personnel Development for Local Administrators of Vocational Education. Final Report.
Norton, Robert E.; And Others
A national training program was conducted to prepare selected vocational teacher educators and state department of education personnel to develop and/or improve personnel development programs for local administrators of vocational education. The training program consisted of a competency-based national training workshop and follow-up on-site technical assistance. (Workshop materials are also available in ERIC as CE 021 465-467.) Thirty participants representing ten different states were selected to participate in the workshop which was planned and conducted using a specially designed competency-based administrator education workshop module as the medium of instruction. A variety of stragegies was used, including small and large group presentations/discussions, individual activities, team activities, case studies, and hands-on activities. Feedback on the workshop was very positive. Participants reported significant gains in their own knowledge and ability to use the competency-based approach. Participants were particularly pleased with the quality of the workshop training materials and the quality of staff/participant interactions. Several of the participating states have conducted needs assessments and made specific plans to provide expanded and competency-based administrator education programs within their respective states.
