National Leadership Development Seminar for State Directors of Vocational Education. Final Report.
Allen, Mary P.
Thirty-four State Directors of Vocational Education or their designated representatives attended a 1-week leadership development seminar for the purposes of developing skills in problem identification and solution, developing interpersonal competencies, assisting in group formation, and beginning a process or developing a model for future action. The seminar consisted of three major presentations by Felix Robb, Curtis Aller, and Roy Dugger, generally dealing with the current status and trends in vocational education. The remainder of the seminar was conducted on a small group discussion basis. A paper on the problem-solving process and three background papers from State Directors are also included. Specific plans emerged for: (1) a four-state study, involving members, on how to more effectively utilize staff of state departments, (2) a task force group to continue to study the scope of vocational education, and (3) a change in the structure of national meetings held by State Directors of Vocational Education to "problem-solving" as opposed to the traditional "speech making."
