Imaging Futuristic Career Guidance Programs.
Miller, Juliet V; And Others
This Module is directed toward guidance personnel in school (K-adult) and agency settings such as counselors, teachers, students and administrators. It is also designed for students in pre-service education programs who have had previous exposure to career development theories and to sources of educational-occupational information. The Module assumes that the participant is not familiar with the area of futurism (other than through exposure to the first Module in this series, "Imaging Futuristic Career Guidance Goals," which is a pre-requisite for this Module) and, therefore, is designed to provide an orientation to the process of futurizing career guidance practices. This module emphasizes that futurizing need not require a total program change. It is possible to use futures planning techniques and redesign these for individuals to use in the career planning process. Alternately, existing career guidance practices can be redesigned to make them more futuristic. In addition to these areas, the Module emphasizes developing skills in using futures planning techniques, and in using multiple sources of information to generate futuristic career guidance practices.
