Industry-Education Cooperative Program for Preservice and Inservice Vocational and Technical Teacher Training. Final Report.
Brown, Donald V.
An industry-university partnership was established in 1966 in the form of the Training and Technology (TAT) project at the Oak Ridge G-12 Plant. TAT, designed to being the expertise of industrial technology closer to those in vocational education, proposed to involve worker trainees, teachers, and industrial personnel in a two-level training program. Now with 4 years of research and experimentation through a combination of industry and university facilities, equipment, and personnel, the TAT project has evolved into two major components: (1) worker training of disadvantaged youth and adults, and (2) the Teacher Institute. This report concerns the Teacher Institute program (1968-70) as operated by The University of Tennessee in cooperation with agencies within the TAT project, and covers: (1) Inservice Teacher Preparation, (2) Prospective Teacher Preparation, (3) The Graduate Fellowship Program, and (4) Conclusions and Recommendations. Included in the Appendixes are sections on: (1) Representative Inservice Machinery Program, (2) Typical Program Schedule, (3) Program Appraisal, (4) Excerpts from The Evaluation Report, (5) Evaluation Questionnaire, and (6) Proposed and Revised Course Syllabi.
