Specific Needs for Updating Educational Experiences as Reported by Instructors of Electronics in Industrial Education Departments of Colleges and Universities.
Slater, John Breisch
A survey of 133 industrial education electronics instructors in 115 4-year colleges and universities in 40 states was conducted to determine the expressed needs of college level electronics instructors for updating educational experiences in specified elements. An attempt was also made to determine the nature of course content needed in graduate level programs. Findings and conclusions included: (1) 20 percent of the participants graduated prior to 1950, 30 percent during the period 1950 to 1960, and 50 percent graduated after 1960, (2) Only slight differences in personal educational needs were reported in various baccalaureate degree categories, (3) Those graduating before 1950 tended to report needs concerned with theories of electronic functions, (4) Instructors graduating during the period 1950 to 1960 reported less need for the study's element than those in the other groups, (5) Instructors graduating since 1960 indicated a need for content related to the practical application of techniques involved in the service of electronic devices, and (6) Course content should include all appropriate concepts. This Ed.D. thesis was submitted to the University of Northern Colorado. (GR)
