Assessment of the Impact Vocational Education Can Have on Improving Worker Productivity. Long-Range Action Plan.
Illinois Univ., Urbana. Dept. of Vocational and Technical Education.
This long-range action plan identifies needed research and development activities in vocational education to improve the productivity of the workforce. It is designed to assist individuals at the state level to plan and design programs and services that will have an impact on improving the productivity of the workforce. It is divided into three main sections. The first is an introduction that discusses productivity and briefly summarizes the monograph, "Potential Roles for Vocational Education in Improving the Productivity of the Workforce," which served as the basis for the development of this plan. Section 2 presents general recommendations and a rationale for further research, curriculum development, professional development, and dissemination activities in vocational education to improve the productivity of the workforce. The final section makes specific recommendations for vocational education and research and development activities. They are presented in four major categories--research, curriculum development, professional development, and dissemination--and are prioritized as A (most important), B, or C. Activities helpful for initiating action are suggested for each recommendation. (YLB)
