Toward the 21st Century: Preparing Strategic Thinkers in Vocational, Technical, and Occupational Education for Restructuring Establishments.
Groff, Warren H.
This report describes how Nova University started the Ed.D. Programs for Higher Education with a focus on preparing community college personnel. The Vocational, Technical, and Occupational Education (VTO) specialization consisted of two seminars: Personnel--Human Resources Development (P-HRD) and Emergence of VTO. The program focused on preparing transformational leaders who think strategically about fundamental restructuring of establishments created in the industrial era. The seminars were offered in a format linked to the Summer Institute (SI). Students received materials and completed assignments prior to the SI, participated in SI activities that consisted of a theme and specialization sessions, and produced a synthesis paper. Related activities included workshops and practica. Following the eight-page report are these appendixes: (1) P-HRD materials, including a resource manual with readings, practicum and research project ideas, proposal development and evaluation protocols, and sources of information; (2) E-VTO materials; (3) titles of VTO and HRD practica undertaken as related activities; and (4) materials from the "Leadership for Innovation and Change" workshop. A postscript provides information on the author. The following student seminar papers by Polly Schultz are provided: "Redesign of the Education System"; "The Emergence of the Technical Society"; "Studies about Education"; Intellectual Capital Formation"; "Relevant VTO Materials"; and "Intrapreneurship in Postsecondary Education."
