The Cooperative Vocational Program. Multi-Media and Simulated Cases for Pre-Service and In-Service Development of Teacher-Coordinators. Final Report.
Uthe, Elaine F.
This report describes a project designed to develop teacher-education materials for use in preparing teacher-coordinators for cooperative occupational programs and for cooperative programs for the disadvantaged. Project materials included multimedia programs (slide/tape presentations combined with student notebooks) and simulated cases. The simulated case technique provided decision-making exercises in a setting where there was opportunity to discuss alternative actions without incurring the risks of a real-life situation. Field testing was built into the project. The materials were used in both graduate and undergraduate courses relating to cooperative programs and coordination techniques, and student-suggested clarifications and changes were reviewed for incorporation in program revisions. The instructional materials developed should be effective in providing inservice as well as preservice training for teacher-coordinators. (MF)
