Russell, Earl B., Comp.; And Others
The purpose of the workshop reported here was (1) to share and exchange information from a national survey of the status of competency-based adult vocational education instruction and (2) to assist the participants in implementing or expanding competency-based programs. Contents include four groups of workshop presentations. Three are general reports on the subject: involvement of the Ohio State University Center for Vocational Education in competency-based adult vocational education; activities of the U.S. Office of Education in the same area; and an overview of the national survey part of the project. Six exemplary programs are described in the second section: an instructor initiated and operated program; a large, comprehensive program; a statewide program involving local schools, the State Department of Education, and the Vocational-Technical Education Consortium of States (V-TECS); the Adult Competency Education Project; the Adult Performance Level (APL) approach in adult vocational education; and administration, development, and operation of a school-wide competency-based adult vocational program. Adult education resources available at the Center for Vocational Education are summarized in four papers: Career Planning Programs for Women Employees; the Center's Performance Based Teacher Education Curricula Program; Adult Education Programs in ERIC; and Metric Education Instructional Materials for Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education. The final section contains twenty individual action plans developed by participants using the information obtained during the workshop. Appendixes include a sixty-item reading list. (JT)
