Review and Analysis of Curricula for Occupations in Transportation. Information Series No. 28.
Lewis, Wiley B.
Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) publications and non-ERIC publications were reviewed and analyzed to identify major findings, promising developments, strategies, and methodological strengths and weaknesses which exist in curricula designed for preparing transportation workers in transportation transport, and railroad occupations. There is a need for workers in transportation occupations, but sources of formal training are often limited or nonexistent. The need for workers and the limited availability of training emphasize the need for reassessing priorities in planning educational programs. While curricula and curriculum materials are available for certain occupations, improvements are needed and changes will be necessary. To accomplish improvements and changes, curricula should be developed and evaluated through an educational planning system involving occupational analysis, program planning, program development and testing, and documentation and dissemination of results. In addition to curricula, improved recruiting and counseling materials as well as expansion of present programs will be required. (SB)
