Commonalities in the Professional Education Competencies of Selected Community College Vocational Instructors.
Lindahl, Donald Gene
To determine the nature of common professional education competencies of community college vocational teachers, 160 teachers from four western states and from program areas of agriculture, health, home economics, and service occupations were administered a professional education competency questionnaire. Analysis of data revealed that there was no significant difference among the mean scores for community colleges and that commonality existed in terms of responses to competency items. The most important competencies were those relating to instructional management, such as teaching and guidance strategies, while lowest ranking competencies were those relating to program management, including interpretation of history, philosophy, requirements, and laws dealing with education. The generated commonalities indicate that community college vocational teachers, regardless of program area, state, or college, need proficiency in a common core of performance-based professional education competencies.
