Get Them Under Way! A Developmental Guide for the Establishment of Baccalaureate Technological Programs and Other Post-Secondary Technological Programs.
This guide presents a model for planning technological education programs. It presents answers to questions involving: (1) the definition of the program discipline; (2) an assessment of the real need for the program, both generally and in the locale of the institution; (3) the availability of the physical and personnel resources to mount the program; (4) the channels through which funding can be achieved; (5) the marketability of the program to the student body; (6) the support for it that might be expected from the general and industrial communities; (7) the speed with which it could be implemented; and (8) periodic evaluation of the success of the program academically and from an accountability viewpoint. The guide is divided into four parts addressing administrative prerequisites, feasibility, the proposal, and operation. (BB)
