1983-84 Oregon Extern Program Project. Final Report.
Dumdi, Eleanor S.; Bezayiff, David
The Oregon Extern Program was undertaken to enable 15 educators and industry trainers to acquire the skills, attitudes, and knowledge necessary to develop, implement, improve, and evaluate local programs of vocational and career education and employment and training programs. Project participants attended a one-week orientation seminar during which individual and group goals were developed along with accompanying activities designed to facilitate goal accomplishment. During the 1983-84 academic year, the externs took part in nine one and one-half day visitations and two to four individually directed visitations and conferences. As a result of their participation in the extern program, the 15 educators and industry trainers were better prepared to provide local and statewide leadership for vocational and career education programs in Oregon. (Appendixes to this report include the agenda for the summer orientation seminar, the course requirements for the extern program, the self-assessment instrument completed by the project participants, miscellaneous project forms, the project follow-up questionnaire, and the recommendations of an outside consultant hired to identify areas in which additional training is needed by vocational and career educators and trainers.)
