Review and Analysis of Curricula for Occupations in Environmental Control. Information Series No. 30.
Lewis, Wiley B.
Accompanying the growing concern for environmental control are expanding job opportunities and an ever-increasing demand for trained personnel to fill these jobs. Thus, vocational educators are confronted with the need to design and develop programs to train needed personnel. To do this in the most effective way, educators need to: (1) assess the availability and current development of curricula and materials, (2) identify promising developments and findings in environmental control occupational areas, and (3) identify and describe the major conclusions and future research and development alternatives. Recognizing these needs, this report identifies subsequent needs for: (1) work-oriented curricula based on occupational analysis and student needs, (2) curricula developed through a systems approach, (3) improved recruiting and counseling materials, (4) improved methods of obtaining feedback concerning programs, and (5) expansion of current programs to meet future needs.
