Illinois Univ., Urbana. Dept. of Vocational and Technical Education.
The Office of Community College Research and Leadership project involves research, technical assitance, information dissemination, and leadership activities for postsecondary Illinois vocational-technical education target audiences, especially community college administrators. "Update" newsletters and "Research Briefs" reporting current research and information were developed and mailed to approximately 750 educators in November 1990 and May 1991. A survey of needs of Illinois community college vocational-technical education was conducted. The office concluded a technology transfer study in fall 1990 and distributed a final report and executive summary. It conducted tech prep research and development efforts for the Illinois State Board of Education's Department of Adult, Vocational, and Technical Education. Presentations were made at national meetings about research efforts. The office conducted two leadership graduate education courses. These products were delivered: Illinois Tech Prep Planning Strategies Handbook; Final Report; Update newsletter and Research Briefs; Executive Summary: Illinois Community College Vocational-Technical Education (ICCVTE) Survey; and Building World Market Competitors: Illinois Community Colleges Transfer Technology. (These appendixes--the bulk of the document--follow the 22-page report: Update newsletters and Research Briefs; Building World Market Competitors, Status Report Summary and Recommendations; Executive Summary, ICCVTE Survey; and two journal articles.)
