NCRVE conducted this national satellite teleconference on September 30, 1992. The purpose was to explore ways vocational teacher preparation could be aligned with educational reform, changing student needs, and changing workplace requirements. The discussion topics included preparing teachers to integrate vocational and academic education, providing teachers with strategies to assist at-risk students, enabling teachers to collaborate in developing and operating Tech Prep programs, and sensitizing teachers to changing workforce skills and competencies. Over 470 sites from forty-nine states and the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Taiwan were registered to down-link the teleconference.
