Michigan's Comprehensive Vocational Education Personnel Development Project.
Ferns, George W.; Callahan, Gwen
The report describes a project aimed at meeting inservice personnel development needs of secondary and postsecondary vocational educators in Michigan. Following an overview which details the development of the project, personnel categories, major events, and a seven-step process model, the report is arranged into 6 parts. The first component of the project deals with the project's technical updating workshops. Needs assessment, locating and cataloging appropriate training sources, and executing successful workshops are presented as critical factors in organizing workshops. Part 2 addresses concerns about teaching competencies. In part 3, an industrial arts component mirrors the first component, also focusing on inservice technical updating. Themes for tailor-made seminars for vocational administrators and inservice events for vocational guidance personnel are discussed in parts 4 and 5. The final section briefly mentions the newest project component, which focuses on individual professional development. The report concludes with a summary of progress made by the project since its implementation. (LH)
