A Curriculum Design for Gateway Technical Institute.
Gateway Technical Inst., Kenosha, WI.
The eight sections of this working model provide an overview of a sequence for the development of a competency-based curriculum at Gateway Technical Institute. Sections 1 and 2 provide general information about Gateway and the philosophy and rationale of competency-based education (CBE). Sections 3-6 set forth the actual guidelines for the development of a competency-based curriculum. Section 3 concerns the philosophy and goals and orientation of students to general education subject areas. Section 4 discusses the philosophy and goals of tne occupational program area, identification of program occupations, development of a mobility chart (career paths), and orientation of students to the occupational program. The three groups of broad competencies--universal, occupational, and occupation related--are the focus of section 5, while section 6 discusses the three parts of specific competencies: conditions/limitations, learning outcomes, and performance criteria. Section 7 focuses on the development of instructional modules. It discusses and outlines the components of the three divisions of modules--orientation, teacher-learner activities, and evaluation. (Evaluation, section 8, is to be conducted by Gateway's Research and Planning Division.) An organizational chart of Gateway and a glossary are appended. (YLB)
