A Planned Occupational Experience for Employed Vocational Teachers. Final Report.
Georgia Univ., Athens.
The overall objective of the project was to formulate a set of statewide policies to provide for a continuing and systematic approach to the problem of updating the content knowledge of vocational teachers in secondary and postsecondary schools. The opportunity for an individualized, planned, two-week work experience in business, industry, industry-operated school, or seminar, was provided for 104 vocational teachers, of whom 80 successfully completed the program. All of the program participants were asked to report on their work experiences and to indicate the extent of changes made or planned in their classroom curriculum as a result of the project. All of the participants reported that their objectives had been met. Described in the report are the planning, objectives, and staffing of the project; participant selection; results in relation to objectives; evaluation; and observations. Over half of the document is composed of appendixes which contain correspondence and forms used in the project. Also included are the applications received and participants placed as distributed by: (1) job title and teaching level and (2) vocational area and teaching level. A random selection of comments from participants and from the business and industrial community completes the document. (RG)
