Singer, Norman M., Comp.; And Others
This document recapitulates the seventh in a continuing series of annual, nationwide vocational education dissemination conferences. As a record of conference activities and a guide to available resources, information, and programs across the country, this recap is intended to serve both conference participants and a general audience of vocational educators. Following the executive summary and introduction is an overview of all conference events that provides the title of each topical session and the names of presenters. Sessions reported later in the conference agenda are indicated. Annotations of the 46 topical sessions (presentations, workshops, and seminars) are then presented. The thematic emphasis of the sessions is on a diversity of tools, techniques, and exemplars for helping vocational educators achieve programmatic excellence in an information age, including databases and retrieval systems; networks, resource centers, and program improvement organizations; microcomputer courseware; and techniques to develop exemplary program improvement products. Annotations follow the sequence of the conference agenda; repeated sessions are indicated. Many session annotations make reference to particular information pieces, handouts, and exhibit materials, which are presented sequentially in appendix A. Appendix B is a list of all conference participants and presenters and their addresses and telephone numbers. (YLB)
