Massachusetts State Dept. of Education, Boston. Div. of Occupational Education.; Massachusetts Association of Vocational Administrators.
The Massachusetts Association of Vocational Administrators (MAVA), with the assistance of the State Division of Occupational Education, developed a series of four-day, in service workshops aimed at vocational teachers throughout the State, and the document provides a final report of this project's first year. Part One covers general information regarding project planning and administration, workshop evaluation, and recommendations for future workshops and proposals for future MAVA projects. The 26 workshops were given at vocational-technical schools throughout the State, with host-school and non-host school directors recruiting participants. Host-school directors and all participants received pre and post-workshop questionnaires, which form the basis for program evaluation and recommendations. Participant responses indicated general satisfaction with the workshops. Part Two provides very brief descriptions of the workshops, which include: Electrical; Auto Mechanics; Auto Body; Clothing; Health Occupations; Data Processing; Graphic Arts; Machine Shop; Wood Trades; Plumbing; Food Trades; Academic; Painting and Decorating; Printing; Beauty Culture; Fashion Dressmaking; Drafting; Metal Fabrication, Welding, and Sheet Metal; and, Electronics. Samples of hand-out materials and administrative documents, including pre and post-workshop participant evaluation questionnaires, are appended. (LH)
