Career Education: A Challenge of Our Time. National Career Education Workshop Proceedings.
Briggs, Lloyd D., Ed.; Green, Gary L., Ed.
The purpose of the workshop was to create a greater awareness among teacher educators of the career education concept and to examine methods for integrating career education into preservice teacher education curricula. The 567 participants represented 69 teacher education institutions from 50 States. The agenda consisted of a general overview of recent thinking and development in career education, followed by small informal groups concentrating on methods application. Presentations related to "Prevalent Career Education Concepts" included "Career Education and Teacher Education"; "What Business Asks of the Schools"; "Career Education"; "Communication, Teacher Behavior, and Humanism"; "Career Education--Articulation in the University"; "Career Education: The Challenge of Our Times"; "What We Believe: Career Education and the Role of the College in Its Development and Implementation"; and "Federal, State, and Local Responsibilities in Career Education". Other presentations provided descriptions of local school career education programs in Weatherford, Texas; Des Moines, Iowa; Montgomery County, Maryland; Eastern Arizona; and Broward County, Florida. Small group sessions, with nationally recognized career education leaders serving as facilitators, focused on College of Education deans, vocational education, educational administration, elementary education, guidance and counseling, industrial arts, home economics, and secondary education. A list of participants is grouped according to institution. (EA)
