D.O.T. In-Service Training: A Prerequisite to CBVE.
Tauber, Robert
An inservice training program was implemented at the Erie County Technical School in Pennsylvania to familiarize school shop teachers with the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) so they could use it as a tool to develop relevant competency-based vocational education (CBVE) programs. Addressed during the inservice were the following topics: unlocking that portion of the DOT that most relates to given shop areas, identifying occupational titles describing areas that program graduates are prepared to enter, isolating entry-level and additional training occupations, and extracting worker actions and tools used from given DOT definitions. After the occupational information obtained by the workshop participants was validated by Craft Advisory Committee members, the end products of the inservice were shared with a wider audience of interested students, parents, counselors, and other school and community personnel. The inservice, which can be offered in four hours, has been implemented successfully in seven different sites throughout Pennsylvania and has proven to be a valuable means of providing shop teachers with the knowledge of the recent development in the world of work that is prerequisite to the development of current and relevant CBVE curricula.
