New Directions in Post-Secondary Education; Expanding Opportunities for the Occupational Education Student.
Brown, Terence, Ed.
The proceedings cover a conference of representatives of all the community colleges in the southern part of Illinois and one in Kentucky with representatives from the School of Technical Careers at Southern Illinois University. The conference objectives were to discuss common problems and issues related to closer coordination of effort among the participating institutions. A cooperative nursing program among the schools has been effective, and representatives of the institutions believed further cooperative ventures were desirable. In providing a focus for the workshop conference, six papers were given following a welcome speech by W. E. Malone of SIU: a paper on expanding opportunities for the occupational education student by K. G. Skaggs; on career mobility by J. H. Smith; curriculum flexibility by Ralph Kuhli; accrediting and credentialing limitations on flexibility by Don Frey; operational limitations on flexibility by Lori Reibling; and suggestions for living with the limitations by S. V. Martorana. A page of commentary; a list of attendees, speakers, and resource persons; an allied health fact sheet; and a map of the geographical area showing the location of participating institutions are included in the proceedings.
