A Model Continuing Education Needs Assessment/Response System in Science and Engineering. Summary Report.
Zemp, John W.
The Charleston Higher Education Consortium (CHEC), which includes all postsecondary institutions in the tri-county area of Charleston, suggested that a need existed for improving the local capacity of educational providers (particularly colleges and universities) and industries by conducting reliable assessments of the continuing education needs of industrial scientists and engineers and by designing appropriate follow-through responses. Therefore, a multi-college, multi-industry system was devised, tested and disseminated that offered a model of comprehensive needs assessment and coordinated follow-through procedures. In addition to the rationale for the project, the first part of this report includes a summary of the project's activities for 1978-1980. The second part of the report includes documents related to the project including (1) initial management survey; (2) follow-up management interview; (3) employee survey; (4) recommendations report; and (5) outcomes survey.
