National Program Development Institutes in Technical Education. Final Report.
Miller, Aaron J.; And Others
Two recent training institutes for new and inexperienced technical education administrators were designed to develop and improve the participants' understanding of the philosophy of technical education, the technical education leadership role, and how this role relates to program planning and development of continued leadership potential through inservice training. The 2-week institutes at the University of Michigan and Texas A and M University were attended by 89 technical education administrators from 37 States. Topics covered during the institute included: (1) The rationale and need for technical education, (2) administrative structures for technical education institutions, (3) staffing technical education programs, (4) facilities and equipment for technical education programming, and (5) national, State, and local resources for program support. A formal evaluation of the participants was conducted to determine the gain in knowledge acquired, the ability to plan for implementation of positive program change, and the intent to provide a continuation of leadership development activities. The results are included in this document. (JH)
