Proceedings of the West Virginia University Industrial Arts Undergraduate Program Development Conference (Morgantown, November 8-10, 1969).
West Virginia Univ., Morgantown. Coll. of Human Resources and Education.
In the spring of 1965, West Virginia University called a moratorium on undergraduate enrollment in industrial arts education. This was to provide time for the faculty to review and develop a new approach to this program. An interdisciplinary conference was held in an attempt to meet this goal. It was designed to determine the university's function in industrial arts teacher education and to provide recommendations on program scope, elements, and resource personnel. This tapescript of the 3-day conference includes these presentations: (1) "The University and Industrial Arts Teacher Education" by William J. Micheels, (2) "Considerations for the Future: Technology and Change" by John McHale, and (3) "A Proposed Content Structure" by Thomas J. Brennan and Paul W. DeVore. In addition, verbatim reports are given for general and small group discussions. Some recommendations from the last session were that industrial arts give students the language and some feeling for the modes of association and transaction in industry, and an understanding of their environment. Resource persons were identified and program suggestions were offered throughout the discussions. (EM)
