Planning for Change. Spaces for Career Preparation: Document 4.
This document incorporates the findings of a project initiated to find solutions to the problems of planning, designing, constructing, and utilizing facilities to house career education on the part of educational administrators. Traditional solutions, continually increasing costs, and the need for greater emphasis on the learning environment provided the impetus for focusing attention on the options for local determination with minimum emphasis on regulating procedures. Project findings reveal that the design of new flexible facilities for career education requires space management--matching students' learning needs (curriculum) with the things of learning (space, tools, aids), placing them within a time frame (schedule), and doing this all within an allotted budget. Suggestions and building designs are offered for flexible facilities into which an almost infinite variety of settings can be placed that include delivery of the services necessary for facility operation without destroying the universal quality of the space.
