Warmbrod, Catharine P., Comp.; And Others
This report summarizes the proceedings of a technical assistance conference held for thirty vocational education representatives from ten states. The goal was the development of plans of action for increasing the involvement of business, industry, and labor in vocational education personnel development programs. Section 1 contains five conference papers on strategies for involving business, industry, and labor in personnel development. The titles of these papers are (1) Role and Responsibility of Industry in the Professional Development of Vocational Educators, (2) Using Community-Wide Collaborative Councils for the Professional Development of Vocational Educators, (3) Working Effectively with the Community Power Structure, (4) Using Advisory Committees Effectively or Fifty Ways to Get More Out of Your Advisory Committee, and (5) Can Labor Play a Meaningful Role in Vocational Education Staff Development? The second section provides status reports and plans of actions for the ten participating states. Each of these state reports summarizes current efforts (state-of-the-art) to utilize business-industry-labor inputs in vocational education personnel development programs, identifies gaps and deficiencies in this effort, and presents a plan of action for the coming year. The last section summarizes a panel discussion on facilitators and inhibitors in implementing vocational education staff development plans involving business, industry, and labor. (EM)
