Public Service Occupation Workshops for Core Curriculum: Instructional Associate, Governmental Management. EPDA Workshops, June 1975. Final Report.
Nelson, Hilding E.
The diversity and multitude of new public service occupations has encouraged the development of new occupational curricula in community colleges. One such effort involved the development and distribution of two comprehensive curriculum guides for governmental management and instructional associate programs by the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office. In order to communicate this curriculum information to community colleges, delineate the scope of the public service occupations designation, and encourage the implementation of such programs, seven workshops were held in northern and southern California in 1974 and 1975. This document describes workshop outcomes by theme: (1) Instructional Aide/Associate Workshops; (2) Governmental Management Workshops; (3) Public Service Occupations Workshops. Each of the workshops followed a similar procedure: first, programmatic need was established; then, after identifying necessary program content, guidelines were given for program implementation. Analysis of evaluation questionnaires administered to participants reveals that although the workshops were successful in defining the scope of and need for public service occupations programs, workshops did not result in the conception of a need for the evolution of a distinct department or section to house all public service occupations courses or curricula.
