These proceedings contain the keynote address, four papers, and summaries of four group discussions of the Eleventh Annual Pennsylvania Conference on Postsecondary Occupational Education. The keynote presentation is by Harold "Bud" Hodgkinson, distinguished analyst of current trends and the likely future of social, economic, and political settings in which postsecondary education will be operating. His presentation discusses international trends related to the world of work, planning issues, public attitudes toward education, the effects of education in the United States, population trends, industry involvement and its benefits, and linkages of community service agencies. The other four papers concern the four issues which were focused on by the planning committee. They are entitled Retraining Programs for the Handicapped Adult, Upgrading Programs in Postsecondary Education, A Conceptual Framework for Occupational Education Community Service Programs, and New and Emerging Careers. A summary of the highlights of a group discussion on each of the issues immediately follows the respective paper. Appendixes include the conference program and notes on authors and editors. (YLB)
