Planning Facilities and Equipment for Comprehensive Vocational Education Programs for the Future. Final Report.
Larson, Milton E.; Blake, Duane L.
Trends and new approaches to aid those engaged in planning facilities and equipment for vocational education programs were developed during a 5-day institute. The 98 participants, representing 42 states and Puerto Rico, included state directors or supervisors, local directors, architects and facilities planners, and vocational teacher educators. The program consisted of formal presentations, reports from eight task-force groups, and field studies of facilities and equipment. The task-force groups concluded that outstanding areas needing emphasis are innovative planning, need-studies, open space planning and good educational specifications and how to produce them. Some recommendations, based on participant evaluation, were: (1) An institute dealing with fundamental facilities should be held every other year, (2) More research should be focused on the elements of facilities and equipment planning, and (3) Visual aids concerned with facility planning need to be developed. Appended are presentations by guest instructors, reports of task-force groups, evaluation form and letters, and program information. (SB)
