The Development of Research Capabilities of Key Puerto Rico Professionals in Vocational-Technical Education.
Lo Cascio, Ralph
Summarized are the results of efforts exerted by the Puerto Rico Research Coordinating Unit to expand the Puerto Rico research capability in vocational education by: (1) identifying relevant legislation and its historical antecedents, (2) identifying the administrative structure responsible for conducting research in occupational education, (3) exploring and identifying resources and materials available for research and development, (4) developing skills fundamental in identifying research problems, and (5) developing competencies in proposal writing. A total of twenty educational professionals in key leadership positions participated in the 3-component project which includes: a research development seminar, tutorial sessions, and evaluations. Findings indicate that the project's success can be attributed largely to the quality of the administrative personnel, intensive planning, and balanced coordination. (SN)
