Menefee, Selden, Ed.; Cornejo, Esperanza, Ed.
One workshop at Michigan State University and another at the University of Florida were held in February 1969 to assist junior colleges in developing and selling the idea of well-rounded occupational curricula. More than 110 representatives attended each conference. This monograph records first the topics and discussions covered at both Gainesville and Lansing, and then those dealt with only at Lansing. Part I covers (1) general problems (planning for occupational education, role of advisory committees, community involvement, cooperative education programs); (2) major area developments (allied health and medical training, science and engineering technology, business-related courses, public service and law enforcement); (3) reports by colleges on their own outstanding programs; and (4) special talks on new approaches, new trends, and necessary ingredients in occupational education. Part II contains supplementary comments on (1) planning and coordination, (2) outstanding programs, and (3) the development and function of the community junior college in general, the dynamics of technology and society, and the importance of liberal learning in technical education. Participating colleges and their representatives are listed. (HH)
