The Eighth Annual Conference on Postsecondary Occupational Education: Accommodating Change in Postsecondary Occupational Education.
Martorana, S. V., Ed.; And Others
The five papers presented in this volume consider the changing concepts, values, delivery systems, and needs for management which are a part of the changing context of postsecondary occupational education. Kenneth Hoyt discusses five basic kinds of changing relationships between education and work that have implications for changes, growing out of the career education concept, in the substance and methodology of postsecondary occupational education. Gordon Godbey offers his reflections on the changes in moral and social values of educators and educational institutions that will be required to achieve world-wide life-long adult education. Andrew S. Korim and Lucille W. Thrane consider that impact of career education as a stimulus to change in postsecondary occupational education, concluding that while there are promising developments and research efforts, inhibiting factors in federal legislation, financing, and the availability of reports of career education initiatives place the full impact of career education ahead of us. William Norris reviews the role and promise of PLATO as a delivery system for computer-assisted and computer-managed vocational education. Kathleen Arns describes the new management structures and management styles that will be necessary if community colleges are to provide for personal growth and development of faculty and staff and thus marshall their human resources to meet internal and external change.
