Professional Vocational Leadership Development Program Through Doctoral Fellowships (Operating Grant). Final Report.
Courtney, E. Wayne; Miller, Melvin D.
As a participant in a national program established under the Education Professions Development Act, Oregon State University established a program to prepare selected doctoral candidates with broad professional knowledge and specific competencies as vocational education leaders. An advisory committee was established and a system model for leadership training developed utilizing an individualized curriculum and internship program. Evaluation instruments included pretest and post-test measurements of student competency, attitude, and performance. Major accomplishments of the program are associated with participant success and oncampus changes. Of the 14 original doctoral fellows, 12 received degrees during the course of the program, and graduates were successfully placed in advanced leadership positions. Changes at Oregon State included course revision, a new doctoral program with a major in vocational education, establishment of an individualized vocational learning resource center, and improved research and data analysis of the staff. A list of references is included in the report. Appendixes comprise the major portion of the document and include two test instruments (the revised competency pretest and dogmatism-supportiveness-flexibility scale), student evaluation questionnaires, examples of experiences students had with disadvantaged and handicapped, lists of internship and field experience assignments, intern evaluation materials, and placement data.
