College News and Departmental Notes: Broad Offering in Vocational Education
by Departmental notes - 1916
With the recent reorganization of the department of industrial arts, the trustees of the college promised new courses in vocational education, especially adapted to prepare administrators and supervisors in this field, this new offering to replace the technical shop courses in advanced woodworking and advanced metalworking which were withdrawn. This promise has already been realized by an extensive offering during the present year in vocational education and vocational guidance. A general course in Vocational Education, taking up the larger problems of this new work, is given by Professor David Snedden, who has again become a member of the faculty of Teachers College. A course on Problems in Vocational Education and a second course on the Administration of Vocational Education are given by Dr. Arthur D. Dean of the State Department of Education at Albany. Two courses on Vocational Guidance, one elementary and the other advanced, are offered by Mr. Meyer Bloomfield of Boston. A course on Mental and Vocational Tests with Methods of Applying Them is given by Professor Ruger of the department of educational psychology. Professor Bonser also continues his courses on the Teaching of Industrial Arts in Elementary Schools and on the Principles and Practice of Teaching Industrial Arts in the Junior High School. Supplementary related work may be had in the courses in educational sociology, given by Professor Snedden, in the supervision of instruction with Professor McMurry, and in the administration of education with Professor Strayer.
