CE Programmer's Manual.
Lund, Brishkai; McGechaen, Sandy
Designed as a reference guide for continuing education planners, this manual provides basic information about the process of developing and delivering programs and courses. Material is organized to match job skills described in the systematic approach called DACUM--Designing a Curriculum--which reflects all skills required to be a continuing education programmer or coordinator. ( A DACUM chart is provided.) Seven chapters correspond to the seven general areas of competence programers are expected to perform: assess community needs, plan courses and programs, promote and market courses and programs, manage courses and programs, manage personnel, practice communication skills, and conduct evaluation. Each chapter is organized by the enabling skills making up the area of competence. Basic information is provided about each area. Case studies are sometimes provided as examples and explanations of incidents that may be encountered. Other materials provided include checklists or lists of guidelines to organize activities and samples of program materials and resources. An annotated list of sources for further reading appears at the end of each chapter. An index is provided. A final section contains a copy of the Ministry of Education's "Continuing Education Mini-Resource Library" catalog listing available reports and curriculum resources. (YLB)
