Structure and Technology for Facilitating Human Development Through Career Education. With a List of Innovative Programs and a Bibliography of Relevant ERIC Literature.
Harris-Bowlsbey, JoAnn; And Others
The monograph orders career education program components and assigns responsibility for their delivery, stating major differentiation areas and placing career development and the counselor's facilitating role at the center. The first three chapters review the modern history of vocational choice, career development, and career education concepts; draw implications for present career education programs; and discuss counselors' and computers' roles in some detail. Currently at a statemate due to the counselor's poorly defined role and resultant consumer dissatisfaction, guidance clings to a remedial model rendered inadequate by contemporary vocational maturity and career development constructs. Future career guidance needs to be a sequential, planned, developmental support system promoting increasing self-direction and self-support; four exemplary career guidance programs are cited. The status of the five presently operational computer-based career guidance systems is reviewed. Studies reveal guidance tasks which computers perform extremely well; high student appeal and low cost indicate that those should become computer functions, freeing counselor time for functions computers cannot perform. The final chapter presents a unified model for career education delivery and guidance, with role implications for teacher and community. Extensive appendixes include an annotated list of innovative programs and an annotated bibliography of relevant ERIC literature. (Author/AJ)
