Oakton Community College Curriculum Report.
Jordan, Richard L.
In curriculum development at Oakton Community College, a number of factors are considered for each type of curriculum. For baccalaureate curricula, transferability, completeness, enrollment, relevance and cost are considered. For career curricula, the following are considered: community, State and National need and acceptance; available jobs, pay; enrollment, charge-backs; Cooperation with other colleges; approval of certain State agencies; approval of national accrediting association; and cost. For general studies, student need, enrollment and cost are considered. Various offices, committees, individuals and outside agencies are involved in curriculum design, supervision, implementation, and evaluation. During the next few years curriculum development will be limited somewhat by space problems and the nationwide drop in college enrollments. Probably no new curricula will be developed in the baccalaureate area. Special interest programs for students will be implemented from time to time. An Election '74 program is now under development. Courses as extensions of existing curricula will be added from time to time, and some new disciplines, such as astronomy, may be added. The thrust in curriculum development during the next five years will be in career education. (KM)
