Vocational and Career Education: Concepts and Operations.
Calhoun, Calfrey C.; Finch, Alton V.
Designed particularly for use in undergraduate and graduate courses in principles, history, and philosophy of vocational education and vocational career development, this text is also suggested by the editors for use in inservice teacher education classes in foundations of vocational education, vocational counseling and development, history and philosophy of vocational education, and vocational career development. While viewing vocational education as a component of career education, the authors bring the two together to show their conceptual and operational relationships. The text is divided into three major parts: (1) Conceptual Dimensions of Existing and Emerging Career-Related Programs; (2) Career Development: An Expanding Emphasis in Education, and (3), Operational Dimensions of Vocational Education as a Component of Career Education. Chapter headings are Personal-Societal Needs and Vocational Education; Historical Perspective of Vocational-Technical Education; Factors Influencing Varied Aspects of Vocational-Technical Education; Relationship of Vocational Education to Other Educational Emphases; Theory and Design of Career Education; Implementing Career Education: Issues, Problems, and Needs; Career Guidance in Vocational Education; Institutions Providing Vocational-Technical Education; Organization of Vocational and Technical Education; Curriculum Structure and Strategy in Vocational Education; Research and Vocational-Technical Education; State and Federal Support for Vocational Education; Public Relations for Vocational-Technical Education; and Evaluation in Vocational-Technical Education. Appendix A contains a sample needs assessment instrument and appendix B contains a sample course evaluation form. (TA)
