New Opportunities in Vocational Education. Year Two of the Project, 1977-1978. EPDA 553 Project Final Report.
Northern Illinois Univ., De Kalb. Educational Administration Center.
A project was conducted to adapt competency-based model graduate programs for preparing occupational educational administrators to local conditions and participant needs at Northern Illinois University. (The program was originally developed by Southern Illinois University [SIU]/Carbondale and Illinois State University [ISU].) The programs have been used as a basis for a seminar guide in the General Administrative program for Opportunities Fellows, a post-training evaluation instrument, and a comprehensive internship program. Consultations were held between project developers and members of the SIU and ISU staffs. Other project objectives formulated and achieved were competency-based training, fee waiver, $300 monthly stipend for fifteen fellows in the 1977-78 academic year, and participation by all fellows in a planned joint general administrative entitlement program. Future objectives which are currently being addressed include the placement of trainees by September, 1978, updating of needs for vocational administrators through 1980, provision of a data base and characteristics of vocational administration, and dissemination of program information. Appendixes contain (1) a directory of New Opportunities in Vocational Education participants, (2) administrative certificate course requirements, (3) project publicity materials, (4) a detailed formative evaluation report, and (5) the summative evaluation report.
