Preparation and Utilization fo Instructional Packages and Media for Local Directors of Vocational Education (In-Service Education). Final Report.
Valentine, Ivan E.; Larson, Milton E.
A consortium of the Colorado association of local directors of vocational education, professional staff of the Colorado State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education, and personnel of the Department of Vocational Education at Colorado State University planned and developed instructional packages and media for the in-service education of local vocational administrators. The products generated by this project enable the local vocational administrators to earn three semester hours of graduate credit upon completion of the fifteen modules. Existing vocational administrative materials and courses were adapted to a programmed materials format while videotapes, slide-cassettes, and other media to facilitate learning were prepared. Student learning guides and self-evaluation instruments were developed as well as feedback forms. Following the field testing and revision of the curriculum, media, and Teaching Activities Packages, the materials were then duplicated and disseminated. Upon completion of the project activities, it was concluded that the utilization of TV tapes, slide tape presentations, and programmed instructional material is an effective and efficient method for improving leadership and administrative skills for local vocational directors. (The appendixes include the three learning modules on professional negotiations in vocational education, vocational administrators' liability, and a systems approach for a safety and health program.)
