Vocational Staff Workshops Project: April 26, 1991-May 30, 1992.

The Vocational Staff Workshops Project was initiated in 1984 by the California Community College Association of Occupational Education (CCCAOE) to provide staff development activities for vocational education instructors, administrators, and support services staff. In 1991-92, the project was implemented by Orange Coast College, which subcontracted with Shirley McGillicuddy and Associates. Due to a 5-month interruption in the project's operation, resulting from contractual payment problems, and to some redirection of priorities, not all objectives were achieved. However, the following activities were undertaken: (1) support and/or cosponsorship of two workshops for vocational administrators in conjunction with the CCCAOE fall conference which were attended by almost 200 community college professionals; (2) development of a model to address impacted labor markets in cooperation with Mendocino College, and sponsorship of a related workshop, "The Timber Industry in Transition"; and (3) sponsorship of a statewide vocational education teleconference in conjunction with seven regional workshops on the 1990 Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act. Appendixes include the project report to the CCCAOE Board of Directors; a survey of staff development priority interests/needs; workshop and forum evaluation summaries; specifications for the vocational education teleconference; a teleconference feedback form response summary; and a list of teleconference participants.
