Performance/Competency-Based Professional Development of Vocational Teachers and Administrators: National Conference Proceedings (Philadelphia, PA, October 13-15, 1981).
Harrington, Lois G., Ed.
These proceedings contain the texts of 20 reports presented at a conference organized to review and assess the status of the following types of performance/competency-based approaches to the professional development of vocational teachers and administrators: performance-based teacher education (PBTE), competency-based teacher education (CBTE), competency-based staff development (CBSD), and competency-based administrator education (CBAE). Covered in the first group of papers are PBTE, CBAE, and CBTE programs at various universities in Pennsylvania. In an analysis of progressive PBTE practices various topics are discussed, including implementing an outreach program of professional development for industry trainers using the PBTE/CBSD model and developing learning activity packages. Also outlined is the further revision of the PBTE module series developed by the National Center for Research in Vocational Education. Following a progress report of the consortium for the development of competency-based materials for vocational administrators, various CBAE programs are described, including the Florida preservice and inservice vocational administrator training program, Program LIFE (Leadership Intern Field Experience), and competency-based vocational administrator programs in Ohio and Illinois. Also included are small group reports on PBTE preservice, inservice, and individual competencies as well as postsecondary CBSD and CBAE. (MN)
