An Institute for Preparing Women for Careers in Vocational Administration. Final Report from 11/1/82 to 6/30/83.
In order to promote the goal of increasing the number of women holding the nontraditional role of formal leadership in the Florida system of vocational education, a 2-week training institute for women teachers was conducted at the University of South Florida, Sarasota campus. Selected to participate in the institute were 24 women from eight counties and six community colleges. During the course of the institute, the 2 women instructors, a staff member, and the 24 participants resided together in a dormitory and met from 6 to 10 hours each day. The focus of the workshop was on organizational theory and management, sex equity in education, and career exploration. Included among the activities conducted during the institute were combination lectures and discussions, case analyses, films and other media presentations, role playing, and similar games. Based on an assessment of the institute's impact through such measures as standardized instruments and evaluation of the participants' oral and written products, the organizers of the institute concluded that the 24 women came to form a cohesive cadre of individuals who are now clearer about their career goals and more motivated to complete the necessary steps to become certified vocational education administrators.
