Animal Science Technology. An Experimental Developmental Program. Volume I, Report of the Developmental Program.
Brant, Herman G.; And Others
In 1961, administrative personnel at Delhi College in New York observed that formal training programs for animal science technicians were virtually nonexistant. Response to this apparent need resulted in the initiation of perhaps the first 2-year Animal Science Technology Program in the nation. This two-volume report is the result of an extensive evaluation of the program's development and content. Major sections of this volume are: (1) Introduction, (2) Development of the Animal Science Technology Program at Delhi, (3) Facilities, Equipment and Special Instructional Materials, (4) The Curriculum, (5) Economic-Cost Considerations, (6) Importance of the Study, and (7) Summary, Conclusions, Implications and Recommendations. Included in the appendixes are sample evaluation instruments and statistical data on the followup study. A major finding of the report is that both employers and employees reflected favorably upon the skills and abilities gained in the primary areas of training. Volume II of this report, which contains the curriculum course outlines, is available as VT 013 805. (Author/JS)
