Direct Curriculum Development. Module LT-B-1 of Category B--Instructional Management. Competency-Based Vocational Education Administrator Module Series.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
This module, one in a series of competency-based administrator education learning packages, focuses on specific professional competencies needed by vocational education administrators. The competencies upon which these modules are based were identified and verified through research as being important to the success of local administrators of vocational education at the secondary or postsecondary levels. The materials are designed for use by administrators or prospective administrators working individually or in groups under the direction of a resource person. This module is designed to provide the vocational education administrator with the skills needed to direct the curriculum development process in such a way as to ensure a responsive, articulated vocational program geared to the employment needs of both its students and the community it serves. This module contains an introduction and three sequential learning experiences. Overviews, which precede each learning experience, contain the objectives for each experience and a brief description of what the learning experience involves. Prerequisites and resources are suggested. The final learning experience requires the student/administrator to demonstrate an actual administrative situation in which curriculum development can be directed to the satisfaction of a resource person who is assessing competence in the situation.
