Direct Curriculum Development. Competency-Based Vocational Education Administrator Module Series. Leadership and Training Series No. 58B-7.
Harrington, Lois G.; And Others
Designed to provide pre- and inservice vocational education administrators with the skills necessary to direct the curriculum development process, this competency-based module contains an introduction and three sequential learning experiences. Each learning experience consists of an overview, required and optional learning activities, a self-check section, and a series of model answers for use with the self-check section. Topics covered in the first learning experience include directing curriculum development, staff involvement, the need for articulation in curriculum development, and steps in the curriculum development process. Critiquing administrator performance in a case study of a curriculum development project is dealt with next. The final learning experience involves directing the curriculum development process in an actual administrative situation. (Related competency-based vocational education administrator modules covering direct program evaluation, improving instruction, program promotion, staff development, and student recruitment and admissions are available separately through ERIC--see note.)
