National Inservice Training Multiple Institutes for Vocational and Related Personnel in Rural Areas. Final Report.
Rogers, Charles H.
This project provides in-service training to vocational educators and related personnel in order to equip them with competencies required to develop and direct more adequate and relevant programs of vocational education for people in rural areas. The project provided in-service training for 452 participants from 49 states and the District of Columbia. More than 75 consultants were used in seven institutes, which produced 59 varied papers that are included in the final institute reports. Two background documents produced as part of the common training package (The Changing Educational Needs of Rural People and Guide to Innovation in Education) are appended. Of the 452 participants, 400 prepared plans for utilizing the institute output in their own programs upon returning home. A follow-up of participants indicated that 82 percent of those who responded were able to implement their plans. Numerous plans and recommendations were produced during the institutes which show great promise for improving the quantity and quality of vocational education in rural areas. Based on the immediate and follow-up evaluations of the seven institutes, it is concluded that all of them were at least partially successful in attaining the objectives of the multiple institute project. A 17-item bibliography and several appendixes are included. (Author/MJM)
