Promote the Vocational Education Program. Competency-Based Vocational Education Administrator Module Series. Leadership and Training Series No. 58B-9.
Quinn, Karen M.; And Others
Designed to provide pre- and inservice administrators with the skills necessary to select appropriate program development and implementation, and monitor and evaluate their success, this competency-based learning module consists of an introduction and four sequential learning experiences. Each learning experience contains an overview, required and optional learning activities, a self-check section, and a series of model answers for use with the self-check section. Topics covered in the first learning experience include procedures for promoting vocational education programs (needs assessment, determining the audience, setting goals, and planning the program) and the role of the administrator in the program promotion process. Alternative promotional techniques, planning an open house, audience, and school/community relations are among the areas examined in the second learning experience. Also discussed are developing plans for publicizing and promoting a hypothetical vocational education program. The final learning experience entails promotion of a vocational education program in an actual administrative situation. (Related competency-based vocational education administrator modules covering curriculum development, program evaluation, improving instruction, staff development, and student recruitment and admissions are available separately through ERIC--see note.)
