The Feasibility of a Continuous Learning Year Program at Fashion Institute of Technology.
Thomas, George Isaiah
This feasibility study provides the Fashion Institute of Technology with a number of continuous-learning-year calendar choices, along with several suggestions regarding implementation procedures. The nature of the implementation process and the issues confronting the college administrator who is willing to reschedule the college year to facilitate the realization of short- and long-range objectives are considered. The study recommends a number of curricular changes to facilitate operating the college in eight-week learning periods. A number of options are offered to aid the college staff to realize goals that are peculiar to the Fashion Institute of Technology, a community college. The chapters of the study report are: 1. Establishing Major Objective Priorities; 2. The Nature of the Continuous Learning Year Design; 3. Past, Present, and Future Enrollments and Building Capacities; 4. Applications, Admissions, and Enrollments; 5. Applying the Principles of Time Equalization; 6. Implementation of the Continuous Learning Year Cycling Plans; 7. Implications of a Continuous Learning Year Plan for the Division of Continuing Education; and 8. Highlights of the Fashion Institute of Technology Feasibility Study of the Continuous Learning Year Plan. Sixty-one figures illustrate the text. (DB)
