Illinois Plan for Industrial Technology Education: FY 91 Final Report.
Illinois State Univ., Normal.
A project to implement the Illinois Plan for Industrial Technology Education produced four major accomplishments: (1) 13 workshops were held on Communication Technology and Energy Utilization Technology; (2) workshop activity packets were produced in both subject areas; (3) a "Futuring Committee" was established that outlined a 10-year plan for enhancing industrial technology education in Illinois; and (4) four issues of the newsletter "Technology News Today" were published and disseminated. The project concluded that there is a strong need for more inservice training for technology education orientation-level teachers. Several recommendations emerged: university personnel should provide joint inservice training through regional university courses or summer retreats/weekends; hands-on workshops should be provided statewide; and exemplary teachers and programs should be highlighted. (The bulk of this document consists of four appendices: (1) workshop schedule, flyers, and evaluations; (2) third-party evaluation of orientation-level program; (3) Futuring Committee report; and (4) "Technology News Today," Volume 6, Numbers 1-4.)
