Regional Research Conference in Vocational and Technical Education for Secondary and Post-Secondary Personnel. Annual Research Conference in Vocational and Technical Education (1st, Blacksburg, Virginia, April 16-17, 1976).
Sheppard, N. Alan, Ed.
Major contents of these conference proceedings are 10 addresses presented to the whole conference of 62 educators or to small interest groups. Major addresses were (1) "The Importance of Research in Vocational and Technical Education," by J. Robert Warmbrod, (2) "The Impact of Federal Funds and Establishment of Priorities for Research in Vocational and Technical Education," by Glenn Boerrigter, and (3) "Limitations on Data Collection Under New Federal Legislation," by Dave Alexander. Three shorter addresses are on the impact of research at the secondary and postsecondary levels in vocational education. Four presentations to special interest groups deal with proposal writing and project planning, planning and conducting evaluation and followup studies, developing management information systems, and critique and selection of designs for investigating problems in vocational-technical education. Short summaries of four recently completed research projects and an analysis of evaluation forms are also included along with four appendixes: Conference program, list of conference participants, reference materials on proposal writing and project planning, and Virginia vocational education management information reporting forms.
