Summary

The Department of Vocational and Technical Education at the University of Minnesota explored the possibility of incorporating an emphasis on training and development into existing programs. Activities undertaken to determine the need for such a program included extensive interviews with training and development personnel in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, the obtaining of follow-up information on department graduates to determine current placements in training and development positions, review of existing programs, and a survey of training and development related courses at the University of Minnesota. A mail survey of members of the Southern Minnesota Chapter of the American Society for Training and Development collected data on positions held, educational background, undergraduate college major, the highest graduate degree earned and major, anticipated hirings, interest in college courses or programs in training and development, courses of interest, and the willingness to teach courses or provide internships. A focus on training and development in industry and business was recommended. Other recommendations were made regarding course development, times, instructors, and an internship program. (In addition to 18 tables, appendixes provide graduate follow-up information, the questionnaire, proposals for a training course, an organization development course, a special topics course, and an internship course.)
