Seminar on Shop and Laboratory Planning for Vocational Education. Final Report.
McMahon, Gordon G.
The seminar's major purpose was to prepare 17 participants to provide leadership in facility planning for vocational programs in New York State. It was held in the summer of 1966 and focused on an individual planning problem of each participant. Some of the seminar topics were (1) criteria for plan evaluation, (2) the relation of an educational program to instructional auxiliary, and ancillary space, (3) New York school shop standards, (4) procedures for securing funds, and (5) the theory of educational specifications. Each participant developed educational specifications for his problem. An evaluation questionnaire was completed 1 year later by 14 of the participants. Results indicated (1) 10 were involved in local program evaluation, (2) two reported no involvement in building programs, (3) 11 were involved in remodeling, (4) nine had involved advisory committees in their work, (5) nine had developed educational specifications and these had been used by architects, (6) seven reported personal involvement in the drawing of plans, and (7) nine indicated local job opportunities and student interest as the most important factors in determining program priorities. The questionnaire is included. (EM)
