Workshop in Proposal Writing. Final Report.
Peters, Ernest L.
Funds for vocational education, especially federal funds, have increased greatly during the past decade and more may be expected, but vocational educators lack training in writing the proposals required to obtain these funds. To help develop the knowledge and skills needed to prepare effective proposals, a workshop for vocational administrators and faculty was conducted at West Chester State College, Pennsylvania to inform participants about funding sources, what is involved in applying for them, and how to express this application in writing. Of the 19 participants, six sought and were granted the college credit offered by the Workshop. In summary, it was felt that although participants were enthusiastic the workshop did not achieve most of its objectives, partly because of the extensive flooding in Pennsylvania at that time, which curtailed sessions. While participants did learn something about proposals, most of them brought no ideas for projects and did not develop skills in proposal writing. Recommendations were made that changes in preplanning would be needed, before future workshops of this nature would be effective. (MF)
