Long-Range Career Education Plan for Frederick Community College. Parts I, II, III.
Hawkes, Dennis A.; Kapraun, E. Daniel, Jr.
In order to design a long-range plan for developing and evaluating career education programs and services at Frederick Community College (Maryland), the following steps were taken: (1) 210 representatives of education, business, industry, and community organizations were selected to participate in a Delphi survey to define the goals of career education. Although only 104 individuals responded to the three rounds of Delphi questioning, the survey resulted in the identification of 10 clear-cut goals which are presented in this report. (2) In order to evaluate the college's current career education programs, a follow-up survey of career graduates was conducted, along with an employer evaluation of the career graduates. In addition, an examination of career faculty qualifications was made. (3) A plan of action was designed which gives both intermediate (3 to 5 years) and long-term (10 years) objectives for accomplishing the stated goals of career education at the college. This plan of action is designed to provide the general framework which is necessary for systematic planning, organizing, and evaluating career education activities, and is not intended to provide final procedures for carrying out these activities. The various survey instruments utilized in this project are appended, as is a bibliography of selected references. (Author/NHM)
