Energy Conservation Vocational Instructional Materials. Final Technical Report.
Rassen, Rachel L.; Reynolds, Dorothy F.
A project was conducted (1) to develop 27 instructional modules as part of a curriculum series that presents energy conservation concepts and skills and (2) to disseminate the modules for use in secondary and postsecondary vocational training programs and courses. The series of modules, entitled "Energy Awareness and Conservation: YOU Make the Difference," was developed in a six-step process: (1) reviewing available energy conservation instructional materials; (2) identifying and applying criteria to select occupational areas for module development; (3) identifying occupational and conservation competencies and skills as related to worker motivation to practice conservation; (4) developing two introductory modules and three activity-oriented instructional units to increase students' awareness of the problem and promote active student involvement in a variety of conservation projects; (5) designing a module format for the 22 occupation-specific modules that made optimal use of illustrations; and (6) writing, reviewing, and revising the 22 occupation-specific modules to teach on-the-job energy-conserving skills and behaviors. Six regional dissemination workshops were conducted to familiarize potential users with the materials and to discuss how they can be used. In addition, a flier, two interim project update newsletters, and a promotional brochure describing the project and the modules were sent to persons and organizations on the project mailing list. Project staff also delivered papers at vocational education meetings and wrote journal articles. (KC)
