Use Information Resources to Help Improve Vocational Education Programs. Module LT-I-1 of Category I--Program Improvement. Competency-Based Vocational Education Administrator Module Series.
Kowle, Carol P.; And Others
This module, one in a series of competency-based administrator instructional packages, focuses on a specific competency that vocational education administrators need to be successful in the area of program improvement. The purpose of the module is to help administrators to identify sources of information needed to make program improvement decisions and to improve skills in using these information resources to solve problems and make decisions. An introduction provides terminal and enabling objectives, a list of resources needed, and a glossary of selected terms. The main portion of the module includes three sequential learning experiences. Overviews, which precede each learning experience, contain the objective for each experience and a brief description of what the learning experience involves. Each learning experience consists of a number of activities that may include information sheets, case studies, samples, checklists, and self-checks. Optional activities are provided. The final learning experience also provides an assessment form for administrator performance evaluation by a resource person. (YLB)
