Keeping on Course. Report of the 1970 Regional Workshops of the Council of Diploma Programs.
National League for Nursing, New York, NY.
A total of 710 participants representing 371 agency members attended one of six 2-day workshops, which constituted the second phase of a 3-year curriculum development program and were designed to: (1) identify course objectives in relation to level objectives, (2) select subject matter and learning experiences appropriate to achievement of course objectives, (3) identify resources and teaching methods to achieve objectives, and (4) introduce concepts of evaluation of the total curriculum, the courses, and the students. Utilizing the 1969 report as a base, workshop objectives were met through group work and reactions to these major presentations: (1) "The Concepts of Evaluation as Related to the Total Curriculum, Individual Courses, and Students" by M. L. Dyer, and (2) "Our Course Leads to Evaluation" by L. Ulrich and S. W. Rayfield. Texts of the major presentations are included, and workshop materials are appended. The 1969 workshop report, "Level Objectives: Development and Use in the Curriculum," is available as ED 039 356. (SB)
