Merrill, E.L.; Russell, Wendell H.
Over a 31-month period from June 1966 to December 1968, the University of Tennessee and Union Carbide Corporation conducted preservice and inservice institutes for 160 industrial education teachers. These institutes carried college credit and covered Mechanical Technology and Drafting, Industrial Electronics Technology, Machine Shop and Fabrication, and Physical Testing and Welding Technology. Participants included teachers, retired or discharged military personnel, and industrial employees. The institutes included both technical and professional education courses to upgrade teachers by providing training on realistic industrial equipment in a climate combining industrial methods, processes, production, and production standards. Facilities at the Oak Ridge Y-12 Plant were utilized in these institutes. Costs for these programs were about $225 per week per participant, of this $36-39 was for industrial participation. Appendixes include: (1) Course Outlines, 1966 and 1967 Inservice Institutes, (2) Statistical Profiles and Participants, (3) Evaluation Reports, (4) Followup Surveys and (5) Curriculum Description.
