Current and future employment opportunities in new and emerging occupations within Illinois : final project report RDI-A8-599 by Sally H Spetz( Book )

4 editions published between 1978 and 1980 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Illinois project identified new and emerging occupations within the state and determined the types, levels, and distribution of new vocational education curricula needed to meet employment demands for skilled workers in those occupations. Project staff reviewed similar national research efforts, recently enacted Illinois legislation, and technical and trade journals to identify potential new occupations. Telephone contacts were made with over 450 individuals nationwide, representing industries, educational institutions, professional and trade associations, government agencies, labor unions, service organizations, and private employers. Study findings identified seven new and emerging occupations for which new curricula should be offered: biomedical equipment technician, industrial hygiene technician, podiatric assistant, therapeutic recreation technician, swine confinement facility assistant manager, solar energy technician, and halfway house resident manager. Each was described in terms of job duties, educational requirements, typical employers, present sources of workers, linkages with established occupations or industrial sectors, and current and projected estimates of statewide manpower demand. (A curriculum planning and resource guide for each occupation is available separately. See Note.) Further, twelve occupations were identified as potential new and emerging occupations, due to pending legislation, technology, or borderline demand estimates. (Job duties and exclusion criteria are provided for approximately forty occupations which did not qualify.) (Ylb)
Career and vocational education in the 1980s : toward a process approach : final project report by Larry J Bailey( Book )

4 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A broad outline is presented of process education, defined as a humanistic view of education focusing on the learner and the development of those skills which are believed to be central and important to functioning in the reality of present and future decades. Also discussed is how career and vocational education might be incorporated in such a global paradigm. Historical attempts to define the purpose of American education are summarized and then related to the development of career and vocational education. A developmental curriculum model for career education is presented as a means to the integration of process and career education. Scholars, researchers, curriculum theorists, and policy makers in career education are challenged to build on the theories and trends identified in developing a more humanistic educational system.

A manual of competency matched instructional materials for developing coal mining curricula by Douglas S Katz( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To assist in the development of secondary level coal mining curricula, this report identifies sixty-four competencies considered by coal mining companies and instructors to be of major or moderate importance. Also, four tables are used to aid curriculum planners. Table 1 contains occupational competencies ranked in importance for the secondary level coal mining curriculum; the instructional level is also included. Table 2 lists occupational competencies matched to available instructional resources, and table 3 presents an inventory of available instructional training resources matched to the coal mining competencies (knowledges and skills) which they cover. Table 4 inventories available instructional resources by source, title, author, description, and price. Following the tables are four procedural steps for curriculum planners: (1) identify competencies for inclusion in the coal mining curriculum; (2) identify instructional materials available for use in teaching the competencies selected in step 1; (3) match instructional/training materials to competencies to determine materials best suited for teaching competencies identified in step 1; and (4) make final selection of instructional/training materials to be used in the secondary level coal mining curriculum for entry-level miners.
