Vocational Education Administration: A Case Study Approach to Competency Development. A New Opportunities in Vocational Education Project Supplemental Report.
Mackett-Frank, Muriel; Frank, Frederick P.
Since 1976, a special training program in educational administration for persons with a professional background in vocational education has been conducted at Northern Illinois University. This program is known as the New Opportunities in Vocational Education Project and has an affirmative action emphasis. This supplemental report of the project contains cases to be analyzed as a strategy for providing administrative training. Each case included in the book is based on situations which have been identified as "real" or "typical" by practicing vocational education administrators in Illinois. The different sets of background information, which are suggested for use in connection with the cases, include a diverse array of possible administrative positions, administrator characteristics, interfacing roles, and organizational settings and characteristics. The casebook includes a suggested format for dealing with each case, including guides for selecting the different "givens" or background information that might be used. In addition to the ten cases, the casebook also includes comments on the casebook and vocational education administration competency development; a guide to use of the casebook; a listing of related project documents; and an index to the cases.
