A Program of Training for Installing Competency-Based Vocational Instruction. Final Report.
Fardig, Glen E.
The purpose of this project was to aid vocational teacher education in preparing teachers to install and manage competency-based vocational programs. The project activities included a national workshop for leadership personnel from eleven selected institutions, a series of on-site training workshops for teacher education faculty at the participating institutions, and technical assistance to these institutions. Results of the project included the following products: a list of identified teacher competencies needed for installing and managing competency-based vocational programs; an annotated bibliography of competency-based vocational training materials (both the competency list and the annotated bibliography are appended to this document); and two prototype teacher education modules using the competency-based approach (included separately in the ERIC system, CE 013 794-795). During the national workshop and the on-site workshops approximately 225 vocational teacher educators and other leadership personnel received training. Special training packages were developed to assist in the delivery of this teacher educator training (CE 013 793). Response by the participants to the workshops, the products and materials, and the cooperative efforts of the project staff were very favorable. (Similar training activities and training packages presented as a part of the second phase of the National Institute for Performance Based Teacher Education are reported in ERIC documents CE 014 260, CE 014 160, and CE 014 161.)
