Leadership Development Seminar in Vocational Technical Education. Final Report.
Selland, Larry G., Ed.
A seminar to expand the leadership potential of 34 selected state and local vocational educators from 21 states was held June 2-7, 1968. Specific objectives were to develop an understanding of the critical areas of need for vocational-technical programs, an awareness of desirable program developments to meet these needs, and a knowledge of effective coordination techniques. To this end, a multi-dimensional approach of information presentation, outstanding speakers, discussion techniques and participant involvement was employed. The 17 major presentations are printed in their entirety, including "The Role of Vocational Education in the World of Work," by L. Minear, "Expectations of the Advisory Council on Vocational and Technical Education," by L. Rosenberg. "Case Study of State Leadership Development" by J. Beaumont, "State Vocational-Technical Education Research and Evaluation Programs," by A. Righthand, and "An Education system for the 70's," by D. Nielsen. Summaries of the planning group reports and an evaluation of the seminar are included. (DM)
