Project EFFECT. Energy for the Future: Education, Conservation, Training. Curriculum Guides for the Training of Energy Extension Agents. A Working Paper, Section II: Technical Training.
Indiana Univ., South Bend. Center for Energy Conservation.
This second of four sections in a curriculum guide for training energy extension agents contains general introductory materials, an overview of the total curriculum, and eight modules: Alternative Energy Sources (Solar and Wood), Basic Graphics and Blueprint Reading, Building Materials, Electricity, Introduction to Cooling Systems, Introduction to Heating Systems, Insulation and Ventilation, and Lighting Efficiency. The curriculum is designed for adults with at least eight grade reading and math skills but without previous technical training. Following a brief description of the project which developed the curriculum (Project EFFECT--Energy for the Future: Education, Conservation, Training), these supplementary materials are provided: energy extension agent competencies, core curriculum outline, and class calendar for the eight-month program. The modules for technical training comprise the bulk of the curriculum and assure a realistic, practical focus by providing for field trips, observations, practical experiences, and lectures by instructional faculty and others from the professional and business community. Contents of each module include objectives; teaching/learning activities, resources, and evaluation (quizzes and examination) keyed to the objectives; and syllabi containing descriptions of content on a class-by-class basis. Also available in ERIC are a volume containing sample worksheets, handouts, and examinations for each module as well as full references to all outside sources needed; other sections of the guide; and a final report of the project--see Note.
