North Carolina State Dept. of Community Colleges, Raleigh.
The first of three volumes in a postsecondary secretarial science curriculum, this manual provides a systematic approach to analyzing the tasks performed by office workers in designing and developing secretarial science programs. Following an introductory chapter that describes the organization of the manual, chapter 2 outlines the competency-based curriculum development project of which the manual is a part. In chapter 3, the North Carolina secondary business and office education program is described. Chapter 4 presents a discussion of curriculum advisory committees and student organizations. Recommendations for qualified faculty and staff and professional organizations are discussed in chapter 5. Suggestions for facilities, equipment, and instructional aids needed to implement a particular secretarial science program are presented in the sixth chapter. In the final chapter, secretarial and general office curricula are described and office and business education competencies are listed. Appended material includes task surveys and results, equipment lists, curriculum models, and the New Office and Business Education Learnings System (NOBELS) competencies. (Volume 2 and 3, containing the course syllabi and abstract, are also available.) (LRA)
