Developing Occupational Education Modules That Can Add Up to Careers.
Alvir, Howard P.
The document summarizes a one day training session conducted at the CEGEP (community college) of Hull in the Province of Quebec on June 3, 1974 for 88 professional educators representing 43 different occupational clusters. The purpose of the workshop (and of the document) was to restructure job oriented community college programs towards the multifaceted needs of the job market. Thus, careers were stressed along with the criteria of developing independent learning packages. The document includes a sample module learning package format complete with objectives, pretests, learning environments, and posttests. Criteria are provided with which to judge the practical value of modules developed. These criteria range from course chopping (random and haphazard modules) to module building (practical, organized, balanced, relevant modules geared to rendering the successful learner more fully employable). Twenty-five transparencies used at the conference are also included. (Author)
