Major contents of this report are the seminar presentations made at a national seminar in which educators focused on innovations in personnel development for industry education. Of the ten major papers three established the context of cooperation between business, industry, labor, and education in providing vocational education. Three papers focus on planning instruction and evaluating instructional systems including use of case studies as an instructional device and integration of affirmative action efforts and issues into the personnel development program. Two papers on industry-education-labor cooperation describe a successful industry-education-labor council and analyze the communication process in education-labor cooperative program development. Other titles are "A Program for Improving the Quality of Working Life" and "Future Think: Training and Development...Where Do We Go From Here?" A series of shorter presentations are summaries of various research and development efforts in personnel development; individual focus is on metric education, national occupational competency testing, cooperative adult education, a competency-based postsecondary teacher education program, a program to prepare entrepreneurs, involvement of business and industry in curriculum design, and performance-based curricula for professional development. The final section contains reports of special interest groups on strategies and techniques for providing better industry-education cooperation in specific vocational education areas: trade and industrial, home economics, business and office, agricultural, distributive, health occupations, and administration and supervision of personnel development programs.
