EDUC-1115Foundations of Applied Education

The focus of this course is to develop a critical understanding of vocational/technical/applied education, both its historical development and its current practice. This course is designed to encourage critical thinking and analysis of the foundations of vocational education: historical roots, socioeconomic context, philosophical approaches, as well as current issues and barriers to participation. Students will also explore delivery structures of applied education including colleges, and reflect upon their successes and limitations. By understanding the foundations of vocational education, students will be clearer about their own beliefs, values, and choices as educators in vocational-technical training institutions and systems.
