Planning Immediate and Long Range Teacher Education Programs in Vocational Education. Final Report.
Brown, Donald V.
Hoping to find ways to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort by the various service areas, this seminar placed major emphasis on identifying characteristics common to all vocational areas. With the assistance of nationally recognized experts in vocational education, teacher education, and the behavioral sciences, the following topics were discussed: (1) vocational teacher education challenges, (2) systems analysis in education, (3) human development programs and concepts, (4) post secondary education challenges, (5) cooperation in vocational teacher education, and (6) teacher certification for the future. Intermingled with these formal presentations, the 108 participants also made a study of four distinct and unique models in vocational education: (1) The Teacher Institute, (2) The Webster College's Veterans Accelerated Urban Learning for Teachers (VAULT) Program, (3) the University of Tennessee Pilot Teacher Program, and (4) the Oconaluftee Job Corps Project in North Carolina. Following the general sessions the conferees were divided into small discussion groups by service areas and also by geographic areas. Due to the success of this service others are being planned for the future. (Author/JS)
