Special Training Project for Educational Researchers in the Nation's Large Cities. December 1, 1966-January 31, 1967. Final Report.
Christensen, Virgil E.
A vocational-technical education research institute provided training for 40 members of educational research staffs, the majority of them from larger cities (over 100,000 population), the others from universities, regional education laboratories, state education departments, and research coordinating units. Objectives of the program focused on the role and function of research in shaping vocational-technical education programs in the nation's big cities. An effort was made to up-grade the trainees' research competence and to familiarize them with available resources. The 5-day instructional phase of the program ran in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Vocational Association, giving trainees an opportunity to participate in selected aspects of the convention program and providing a source of professional resource persons. The agenda included lecture-discussion presentations, panel discussions, individual and team discussion sessions with project staff, and small group meetings wherein 10 teams of four people identified a priority problem in vocational education, then designed and developed a proposal outline for researching the problem. Appended are publicity materials, a list of participants, and the 40-page proposal outlines for 10 priority-problem studies. (MM)
