National Program Development Institutes in Technical Education.
Miller, Aaron J.; And Others
The four 1967 institutes were coordinated through a consortium approach wherein the Center for Vocational and Technical Education, the Ohio State University served as the coordinating agency for designing the program, preparing staff, evaluating the program, writing the final report, disseminating information, and following up participants. The General Leadership Development Institutes held at Mississippi State University and Utah State University were designed to meet the needs of technical education personnel in relatively new positions. The State Staff Development Institutes held at the University of California at Los Angeles and The University of Connecticut were designed specifically to help experienced technical education personnel to better understand and fulfill their state leadership roles. Instructional materials for the institutes included the original Compilation of Technical Education Materials (VT 002 936) and the supplements (VT 002 930, VT 002 928) prepared for the 1966 institutes, and additional commissioned papers and materials. Recommendations indicate that the institutes planned and conducted on the consortium approach should be continued in 1968, the leadership and program development training in technical education supported by the federal funds and national advisory services should be continued, and that institutes should be planned and organized around fewer topics of most critical need.
