The Development of Entrepreneurs through Vocational Education. Project Report.
Kalangi, Christopher J.
The specific objectives of the project described were to (1) design and develop a prototypic, modularized, performance-based course of instruction entitled "Introduction to Entrepreneurship" which would facilitate awareness and initiate exploration of entrepreneurship, and provide the necessary content framework and preliminary supportive resources to enable its introduction into ongoing vocational programs at the postsecondary level; and (2) prepare for and conduct an inservice teacher workshop designed to motivate vocational instructors to integrate the course into their present programs. Discussion of the project covers project objectives, products, budget, personnel, the advisory committee, and the accomplishment of deliverables. Emphasis is placed on the section on accomplishment of deliverables, which discusses (in separate sections) the prototypic course of instruction, the 3-week workshop (objectives, highlights, course implementation, and curriculum revision), and workshop evaluation. Approximately half of this report is comprised of appendixes which include the following: Lists of project personnel, members of the advisory committee, and consultants; a 10-page course outline for entrepreneurship which includes student and enabling objectives; evaluation forms for the teacher training workshop and the course; workshop agenda; questionnaire on the usefulness of an entrepreneurship course; and a summary of the workshop evaluation.
