A Report of the Project Statewide Infusion of Career Education into the Preparation of Teachers, Counselors and Administrators. Final Performance Report.
Luft, Roger L.; And Others
Career education staff development activities were conducted by Oregon's Interinstitutional Consortium for Career Education in three phases: (1) staff development for college and university faculties (also reported separately in CE 019 417); (2) program development for teacher, counselor, and administrator preparation; and (3) teacher certification and training program accreditation. (This document reports on activities conducted in all three phases during the project's second year of operation; CE 019 260 provides a final report of the project's third year of operation.) Project management, staff development, program implementation, and teacher certification/program accreditation were examined by three types of evaluation activities: self-evaluation, user evaluation, and third-party evaluation. Selected evaluation findings include the following: (1) positive changes in perceptions toward career education were minimal among college/university students but dramatic among college/university staff; (2) project need was well documented and activities were in line with identified needs; (3) the project assisted higher education and related agencies to interact by providing focus and task orientation; (4) project functions constituted a system of facilitating career education personnel development; (5) project slippage points were identified and adjusted; and (6) information flow was primarily from project central office staff to individual campuses, with little flow among campuses. Recommendations were made to improve further project efforts. (Related materials are appended, including a list of career education competencies for teachers, guidelines for preparatory program accreditation, and abstracts of several project reports.) (BM)
