Evaluation and Dissemination of the Electrical Power Engineering Technology Curriculum Model. Final Report.
McNeill, Perry R.; And Others
Described is a project initiated to evaluate and disseminate the Electrical Power Engineering Technology Curriculum developed at Oklahoma State University. The objective of the evaluation phase, to have the original model curriculum evaluated by both present and potential employers, was accomplished in a two-day workshop with participation of representatives from power generation and distribution companies, engineering firms, electrical equipment manufacturers, and recent graduates of the program. Participants worked in small groups to identify strengths and weaknesses of the program. Overall evaluation was accomplished through use of a questionnaire. A major thrust of the dissemination phase was a four-day workshop for engineering technology educators invited on the basis of geographical distribution and type of institution. Other modes of dissemination included direct mailing of materials to individuals and institutions and trips to conferences and other institutions by project staff members. Results indicate an awareness and acceptance of the curriculum in both industry and the educational community. (Author/SK)
