Designed as an aid for staff at Gateway Technical Institute, this manual provides step-by-step instructions for the implementation of competency-based education (CBE) in occupational and general education programs. After presenting a CBE model and listing the functions of Gateway's CBE curriculum advisors, the manual details procedures for each of the sequential steps in Gateway's CBE implementation process: (1) developing a general statement of philosophy for each program area; (2) developing a statement of goals that articulate the desired outcomes for each program; (3) producing a descriptive list of occupations for which the program prepares students; (4) preparing a mobility chart delineating the common career paths followed by persons who enter these occupations; (5) involving faculty, program curriculum committees, and advisory committees in the writing, assessment, and validation of broad competency statements for each program; (6) writing, formatting, and approving modules which, for each competency statement, detail the value of the competency, instructional content, desired learning outcomes, methods of assessment, learning activities, and resource materials; (7) revising the modules when needed; (8) writing specific competencies to be incorporated in individualized learning packages; and (9) writing and formatting certificates of competence. Forms, procedural flow charts, sample modules, and other aids are included throughout the manual. (JP)
