Preparing for the Future of the Workplace. Volume III: Planning Materials for Educators.
Markley, O. W., Ed.
This volume is the third of three reporting research that is intended to help postsecondary occupational education deans and directors become able to plan more strategically for using new instructional technologies to meet emerging needs. "Planning to Use Emerging Instructional Technologies: Some Useful Methods and Guidelines" (O. W. Markley, Christopher J. Dede, Karla M. Back) describes a relatively simple, but practical, method called "Advanced Back of the Envelope Planning" and two alternative approaches--Entry-Level Strategic Planning and Advanced Techniques for Strategic Planning and Management. The focus shifts to planning that uses instructional technologies, and practical tips and a more tightly focused planning model, a checklist, and 13 references follow. "Intelligence Information for Future-Responsive Planning and Management" (Christopher J. Dede, O. W. Markley) provides a method for developing the "intelligence" needed for effective management of change in public-private settings and a forecast of technological, economic, social, and political factors that will help the reader better understand the trends and issues likely to affect occupational education in the future. A list of 52 references is included. "A Survey of Deans and Directors of Postsecondary Vocational Education in Texas" (Karla M. Back, O. W. Markley) presents results of a needs assessment to determine what instructional technologies are now being used and what future needs are perceived by 29 (out of 50) deans and directors of postsecondary vocational education in Texas.
