Results of Phase I of the Development of Course Content and Teaching Guides for a Total Curriculum in Concrete Technology. Interim Report.
Piper, James D.; And Others
In this first phase, job descriptions and need for trained concrete technologists within the concrete-using industries were determined by survey. The project staff created curriculum materials which were reviewed by outside authorities and put into workable lesson plans by a group of educational consultants. The result was a six-volume set of instructional materials covering 496 student-contact hours or 21 credit hours which could be used to implement 2-year concrete technology courses in post-secondary schools throughout the nation. Pilot programs were established in six junior colleges in the U.S. and Canada to test course content. Recommendations were for continued testing and eventual finalizing of the curriculum in Phase II, the adaptation of the curriculum to other educational endeavors in Phase III, and the creation of recruiting materials. The curriculum materials are available as VT 010 139-VT 010 141 and VT 010 150-VT 010 152. Outlines of these courses make up the bulk of this manuscript. (CD)
