Program Planning and Implementation for the "Exploration Through Technology" Program at Nebraska Technical College.
Willis, Larry F.
An exploration program, part of a comprehensive rural school-based career education project, utilized mini-course offered in cooperation with a community college to introduce ninth through eleventh grade students to technological careers. The objectives of the program were to provide students with short-term exploratory experience and at least one competency in a curriculum area while developing developing the concept of community services provided by the college. Eighteen four to six hour mini-courses were structured in five occupational curriculum divisions: business, auto and diesel, construction, electrical and electronics, and manufacturing and fabrication. The courses were taught by college staff at the college between spring and summer quarters. Of 1,100 students initially indicating an interest in the two-day program and selecting four course choices, 154 actually attended both days. Inservice program development, student enrollment priority, promotion of the program to other area schools and the community, assessment of program need by area counselors and superintendents, means of evaluation, description of content and activities for four courses, and a PERT chart are included. Summaries of student and staff evaluation forms indicate a generally favorable response to the courses. Appended are: planning schedules, promotion materials for superintendents and counselors, and course registration forms. (MS)
