Career Education Mini-Conferences. Final Report.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Center for Vocational Education.
The 27 mini-conferences described in this report were designed to communicate career education philosophy, teaching and counseling practices, evaluation methods, and program activities and results to school practitioners. Focus was on the scope and sequence of career education with the aim of improving the capacities of educators in specifying, comparing, and evaluating the problematic strategies involved in making career education productive. An overview describes each of the 12 conferences in Phase I (for practitioners); extensive content notes from each conference are also included. (The first four focused on the teaching/learning process at four different grade levels. Participants were kindergarten through grade twelve teachers actively involved in career education. The remaining eight Phase I conferences were each concerned with some aspect of evaluation, counseling, community relations, and special populations). The section on Phase 2 summarizes the outcomes of mini-conferences held to determine the status of career education across the nation as viewed by state department of education personnel. The section on the ten Phase 3 conferences lists participants for each conference with no notes or proceedings. Outcomes of the last conference, in which participants representing national business and community organizations discussed ways in which their organizations could participate more effectively in career education, are described in more detail. A complete directory of participants is included. (TA)
