A Sample of Ongoing Career Education Curriculum Development Activities of Federal Agencies.
Towne, Douglas C.
The report surveys curriculum development projects ongoing in 1972 in seven Federal agencies relating to vocational/technical, manpower, adult, and career education. It describes a variety of ways (ranging from personal visitation to utilization of existing publications) in which data can be obtained without undue requests for assistance from the cooperating Federal agency personnel. The bulk of the report consists of descriptions of 90 projects obtained from the following Federal agencies (with the number of projects reported in parentheses): National Institutes of Health, Bureau of Allied Health Manpower Education (47); Social Rehabilitation Service (17); Department of Labor, Manpower Administration (3); Environmental Protection Agency (6); National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Office of Sea Grants (5); United States Coast Guard (2); and Civil Service Commission (10). The descriptions appear as one-page resumes containing: accession number, date, instructional classification, title (with beginning and terminal dates), director, agency contact, source of funding, media, orientation, subject content, and comment (audience, major emphasis, evaluation, distribution). The report concludes with recommendations for conducting further surveys into curriculum development programs in Federal agencies. Attachments include instructional classification code titles, a media terminology control list, and sample project resume forms. (JR)
