Career Education Training and Instructional Materials System. Final Report, 1977-1978.
Montana Univ., Missoula. National Center for Career Education.
To deliver career education assistance to practitioners by facilitating the flow of usable materials and resources on a nationwide scale, the Career Education Information, Training and Instructional Materials System project (1) undertook operation of NCCE's (National Center for Career Education) materials and education services at the University of Montana and (2) participated in activities of "national significance"--e.g., acquiring career education materials from all states and generating national computer services. The prototype center established at the university provided training, identification of appropriate instructional materials, and national communication of career education materials. Activities were directed toward maintenance of the instructional materials--processing (identification, collection, classification of materials), quality control (e.g., continuous field testing evaluation and revision), resource center and data bank, and dissemination. The main thrust was local level curriculum development in career education through inservice staff training and use of resource and specifically developed materials. A training (inservice) model developed in 1976-77 was field tested in various settings. Shorter orientation and clarification sessions in career education were also carried on, and over 5,500 prospective users were informed about NCCE and its work. (Appendixes, amounting to over one-half of the document, include an evaluation of and an extensive report on the Mountain Bell Project, an evaluation of another inservice training project, and comparing career education information and technical assistance systems.)
