Advanced Technology and the Workforce: An Evolving Agenda for Instructor Preparation. Proceedings of the Annual Rupert N. Evans Symposium on Vocational Education (11th, Monticello, Illinois, May 3-4, 1990).
Johnson, Scott D., Ed.; Evans, John A., Ed.
These proceedings contain eight presentations: "Welcome from the Dean" (P. David Pearson); "Introduction" (Scott Johnson); "The Changing Workforce" (Alan McClelland); "The Changing Workforce: Implications for Secondary School Programs" (Franzie Loepp); "The Changing Workforce: Implications for Community College Programs" (Daniel Hull); "The Changing Workforce: Implications for Private Sector Programs" (Joe Hill); "Projection for the Factory of the Future" (Stephen Lu); and "Closing Comments" (Scott Johnson, Rupert Evans). Presenter biographies, the symposium agenda, and list of participants are appended. A final report describes the project that developed the symposium. It discusses symposium development and an ethnographic study of existing vocational curriculum and instruction to determine if they lead to the development of competencies needed by workers of the future. Two project products are described: symposium proceedings and research findings that document current instructional practice in advanced technology programs in Illinois community colleges. Product abstracts are attached. (YLB)
