[Training Program for Retirees from Industry Planning to Teach in Junior Colleges or Technical Institutes. Director's Evaluation Report.]
Runnalls, James J.; And Others
The Training Program for Retirees was a program operating during the summer of 1970 that trained persons retired from industry and the military to teach the technical skills that they had learned in their years of working. The courses included in the training program were: Methods of Teaching, Philosophy of Vocational-Technical Adult Education, Educational Evaluation and Educational Psychology. Selection of participants was based on: (1) current position; (2) age (generally for persons over 50 years); (3) recommendations from the applicant's latest supervising officer; and (4) degrees (a minimum of a bachelor's degree or the equivalent in coursework was required). The participants in the program felt that they were much better prepared to enter the classroom as teachers and that the program as a whole was a great success. (HS)
