Preparing for High Technology: A Guide for Community Colleges.
Long, James P.; Warmbrod, Catharine P.
So that postsecondary institutions can meet the training needs of business and industry, this guide has been developed to help colleges increase and improve their active participation in assisting businesses and industries to use advanced technology. It provides suggestions for keeping faculty up to date, acquiring the latest equipment, and providing programs for training new workers as well as upgrading present workers. The guide also suggests means of using new curricula and delivery systems and modifying existing programs. The guide presents strategies and recommendations for rapid and appropriate responses to new technological development, based on data gathered in the Technology Adaptation Project. The strategies and recommendations for successful practices are divided into four areas: program planning; financing and equipping; staff development and recruitment; and curricula development and delivery systems. A summary of the Technology Adaptation Project is included in the guide. (KC)
