A Curriculum Organization Grid System: A Model for Community College Curriculum Development.
Voegel, George H.
This report presents a model for effective organization of the curriculum. Typical curriculum patterns are examined and deficiences suggested: the hierarchical organization of the disciplines bears little relationship to student needs; departmental structures serve to divide faculty members and inhibit cooperation. It is suggested that a comprehensive developmental program most appropriate to the community college should not follow a definite sequence but should be flexible and draw on content from a number if disciplines. This model calls for program and course coordinators and defines the functions of each. Advantages of the Curriculum Organization Grid include a systematic device for planning, for improving instruction, for developing accurate program costs, and for identifying needed supporting staff and services. Colleges that have tried this model in part are also listed. (JC)
