Competency-Based Professional Education in Home Economics; Selected Competencies and Criteria.
American Home Economics Association, Washington, DC.
At a national workshop sponsored by the American Home Economics Association (AHEA) in 1974, 71 participants (home economists representing all subject-matter and professional sections of the AHEA and other participants chosen for their experience in competency-based education or teacher education) determined that professionally defined competencies can serve as guidelines for developing criteria for determining the effectiveness of home economics professionals. These competencies and criteria can also be used for program planning, certification standards, and/or the professional improvement of home economists. The major portion of the booklet is an outline of 53 competencies, with criteria for each, arranged by topics for both the preprofessional level and the professional improvement level in home economics. The topics for each level are: educational philosophy, professional role, program planning, educative process, and research. Briefer sections contain comment on the background of the workshop project, assumptions made by the designers of the program, definitions of terms, and an implementation model. The booklet concludes with an outline summary of the topics and competencies. (Author/PR)
