Inservice Work Experience Internship Program for Occupational Education Teachers. Final Report.
Sexton, Carl N.
Teachers of occupational education need to be continually updated to be aware of the technical changes taking place within occupations in their area of specialization if they are to make occupational training situations more like the real job. The objective of the study is the development and implementation of a system of inservice work experience for teachers. The unique characteristic of the study was the releasing of teachers from regular teaching duties for a minimum of 40 hours. Twelve teachers, representing all occupational areas, participated and individualized programs of personal development were established with the cooperation of the teacher-participants, academic advisors, and business/industrial personnel. An overview of the problem, related studies, procedures, and implementation are dealt with in detail. A model for the development of an inservice work experience program is described in the final chapter. A five-page bibliography and 37-page appendix including project materials, evaluation forms, and participant responses conclude the document. (MW)
