Review and Synthesis of Strategies for Effecting Change in Vocational and Technical Education.
Wall, James E.
Written as a synthesis of strategies for effecting change, this document is directed toward state and local educational administrators, supervisory personnel, researchers, development personnel, teachers, and teacher educators. In reviewing the literature it was evident that during the past few years there has been a growing emphasis on local initiative in development activities and planning. Local development will require support from Federal, state, and private sources, and improved coordination of change activities among and between all levels of the education structure--from Federal to classroom level. The primary focus must always be on developing local vocational-technical programs which are continuously innovative and self-renewing, with change efforts devoted to improving what the teacher does and how he does it. The literature is reviewed by (1) rationale for planned change, (2) the change process, and (3) alternate strategies for implementation. (JS)
