A Seminar on Current Issues in Vocational Teacher Education in Virginia (Norfolk, Virginia, February 10-11, 1977).
Ford, Joseph A.; And Others
Two major objectives of the seminar on current issues in vocational teacher education in Virginia were (1) to identify priority concerns, problems, and needs in vocational teacher education in Virginia, and (2) to explore alternatives and solutions to the problems identified. Teacher educators, deans of education, vocational education administrators, area supervisors, educational advisory council members and others responsible for implementing vocational education constituted the forum. Informal, brainstorming sessions were analyzed and synthesized for guidance to relevant changes in the process and product of vocational teacher education in Virginia. An analysis of the small group interaction suggestions produced ten categories: Administration, articulation, communication, curriculum development, evaluation, expansion-involvement, legislation, professional staffs, recruitment, and student teaching. A periscopic synthesis delineated the target areas (who) and the action (what) for each of these ten categories. The approximately 50 cumulative solutions, stated in behavioral terms, represent recommendations to the State Advisory Council on Vocational Education and appear to be significant in educational planning and decision making for vocational teacher education in Virginia.
