A report is given of a 1-week intensive inservice conference for 97 Wisconsin vocational, technical, and adult education instructors, conducted to develop competencies stressing innovative individualized curriculum and instructional delivery. The program of educational experiences developed presentations on topics that stressed individualized vocational education: (1) developing instructional packets; (2) mediating individualized instruction; (3) open-entry/open-exit programs; (4) guidance and counseling; (5) occupational updating; (6) learning assessment centers; (7) competency-based instruction; (8) mastery learning; and (9) avoiding sex-role stereotyping. An overview of the project includes a description of the processes of establishing the learning activities, preparing the project proposal, and funding the project. In discussing the outcomes of the seminar, a description is given of the participants and the results of "opinionnaires" answered by the participants, an examination of needs and interests of vocational, technical, and adult education instructors, and a summary of post-seminar impacts. Recommendations are made for future seminars of the same type. (JD)
