Rural Area Application of Vocational Education Innovations Resulting from Research and Development Programs. Final Report, Institute V.
Towne, Douglas C.
In May of 1970, a 1-week workshop brought together vocational educators, information science experts, and specialists in planned educational change for the purpose of developing models of information systems designed to utilize research and development information in bringing about innovations designed to facilitate vocational-technical education in rural areas. The activity was 1 of 7 coordinated inservice institutes conducted during 1970 for vocational education and related personnel from rural areas throughout the United States. Major problems with which the institute dealt related to transfer and utilization of information to bring about changes in instructional programs. Through use of various approaches, the steps in the educational change process were illustrated and simulated during the workshop experience. Three small groups worked together to apply the concepts and approaches presented and developed by the consultants, interpreters, and participants. The work of these groups resulted in 3 planned strategies designed to bring about educational change in different problem areas facing occupational education in rural areas. (JH)
