Articulation of Vocational Education. Proceedings of the Sun Mountain Conference (Winthrop, Washington, May 18-20, 1975).
Heuchert, Arnie H., Ed.; Postlewaite, Beverly W., Ed.
Articulation is the relationship between educational programs which provides a smooth transition for a student moving, either horizontally or vertically, between programs. The major objectives of this conference were to: (1) identify problem areas and strategies for improving articulation among secondary and postsecondary vocational education programs; (2) discuss examples of successful articulation efforts; (3) make a personal commitment and recommendations for furthering articulation efforts in local, regional, and state vocational programs. Following major presentations and panel presentations, the participants were given the opportunity to discuss the points presented. During small group activities the participants were given a specific charge and asked to evaluate, discuss, and arrive at a group consensus. Abstracts of the major addresses, panel presentations, and small group consensuses are provided. Recommendations are divided into local, state, and WCLA roles and responsibilities toward articulation efforts. Appended are the text of Dr. John Lombardi's keynote address, letters to vocational directors and state administrators, a local "action" plan, and a list of conference participants. (NHM)
