Review and Synthesis of Research on Cooperative Vocational Education. Research Series No. 60.
Wallace, Harold R.
Basic concepts, definitions, and philosophical positions concerning cooperative vocational education were identified to form a theoretical model for program development. The review crosses the boundaries of the occupational fields within vocational-technical education, and attempts to focus more narrowly on a specific instructional methodology "Dissertation Abstracts," professional journals, and a computer search of the ERIC collection were reviewed to identify 279 research studies with publication dates from 1934-1969. Major topics are: (1) The Student Learner, (2) The Employment Community, (3) Educational Technology, (4) Program Implementation, and (5) Priorities, Problems, and Issues. Some research gaps include: (1) a theoretical and philosophical framework for research and development in vocational and technical education, (2) interpretative dissemination systems for manpower data, (3) research technology to provide for transformation of occupational analysis data into instructional objectives, and (4) communication of research and development products by practitioners in vocational-technical education.
