Guide for AVTS and Community College Post Secondary Distributive Education.
This guide is aimed at persons concerned about quality postsecondary distributive education programs, specifically in Kansas. It provides guidelines for program organization and administration in community colleges and area vocational-technical schools. Section I presents general introductory information about postsecondary distributive education, including program characteristics in community colleges and a discussion of mid-management programs. Section II, program development, includes such topics as procedures for approval of postsecondary vocational programs and an explanation of the different types of instructional programs. Other sections include the following: program management (e.g., curriculum and articulation); advisory committees (e.g., teacher coordinator's role, a two-year program plan checklist); facilities, equipment, and resources (e.g., program needs, purposes of the distributive laboratory); instructional staff (e.g., instructor self-assessment); students (e.g., student recruitment, special needs students); cooperative work experience (e.g., training plans, group sponsor development); Distributive Education Clubs of America (e.g., marketing projects, advisors); evaluation, follow-up, and placement (e.g., basic evaluation outline); and program promotion and public relations (e.g., better speech techniques, accepting gifts and donations). A short bibliography concludes the guide. (CT)
