Future Events Impacting Occupational Education: A Report on the OCTOC Delphi Study. Vol. 1.
Adams, Charles A.; Mecca, Thomas V.
A two-phase study using the Delphi Technique examined the future of occupational education in central New York. The study surveyed three groups having some degree of relationship to occupational education: beneficiary groups (employers), policy making and/or influencing groups, and advisory/informational groups. The survey instrument included 134 events that could have some effect on occupational education and was designed to determine the probability of the event occurring, time frame, and its impact on education. Of the 134 events identified, 128 were estimated to occur probably by the year 2000. Five events were thought to occur by 1980. Twenty-four events were identified as having a strong positive impact on occupational education and fourteen events were forecasted to have a probable negative impact on occupational education. (Appended material includes a list of the 134 events with findings and the questionnaires.) (LRA)
