These proceedings contain summaries of the panel discussions and workshops as well as texts of the individual papers and reaction papers presented at a conference that focused on key issues of concern to educators and industry involved in the education and training of agricultural machinery technicians. Addressed during the conference were the following areas: the role of industry in agricultural mechanization education; recruiting and providing quality postsecondary instructors and keeping these same instructors technically and educationally competent; the goals and problems of curricula at the secondary, postsecondary, and university levels; interfacing agricultural mechanization programs and ways in which schools and industry can cooperate to resolve problems associated with on-the-job training; funding strategies and funding sources; and future challenges and opportunities for educators and industry. The appendices include lists of the planning committee, participants, workshops and the conference agenda. An author and a subject index of papers and reports is also attached.
