Managing Vocational Education Programs. Vocational Education Curriculum Specialist, Module 14.
Appleby, Judith A.
One of five modules in the administrative series of the 16-module series designed to train vocational education curriculum specialists, this module is intended for use in classes or individual study arrangements at the preservice or inservice level by students with varying amounts of experience in vocational education. (These modules are revised versions of earlier study guides--see note.) Introductory materials include an overview, instructions to the learner, detailed list of behavioral goals and objectives, and resources needed to complete learning activities. The module is divided into three sections, each based on one of the goals. The first section discusses management responsibilities in which the curriculum specialist might become involved. In section 2 are summarized the characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of major planning and management techniques for use in vocational education. The third section reviews accountability in education, looks at essential components of an accountability system in vocational education, and describes the role of the curriculum specialist in the system. Each section follows a standard format: text, individual study activities, discussion questions, and group activities. A summary of the module follows. Appendixes include suggested responses to the study activities, a self-check, responses to the self-check, and recommended references. (YLB)
