Gorman, Anna M.
To determine priorities for critical problems facing consumer and homemaking education and plan research projects which focus on these critical problems, a 5-day conference was attended by 107 vocational-technical education specialists and educators. Conference sessions were planned to (1) identify critical research problem areas and prepare a priority list, (2) describe research strategies, methodologies, and institutional-state resources to contribute to the solution of these problems, (3) determine lines of coordination for completion of research projects, and (4) disseminate conference proceedings. Activities included panel discussions and reactions, group work, and these presentations: (1) "The Challenge of Being One" by A.J. Miller, (2) "What's Wrong (Right) with Evaluation" by J. Walker, (3) "Simulation Materials and Techniques: Instructional Tools for Vocational Education Leadership Preparation" by D.L. Ward, (4) "The DELPHI Technique: A Tool for Inquiry," by K.E. Gray, (5) "Developing a Research Problem" by F.C. Pratzner, and (6) "Differentiated Staffing for Vocational and Technical Education in the Community Junior College" by J.P. Arnold. (SB)
