Computer Science Curriculum Development Guide.
Grabow, Chad Lee C.
This guide provides specific information and resources for course and curriculum development, beginning with an outline of the basic elements of a curriculum and a listing of exemplary curricula in computer science education from other colleges. The definition of, need for, and essential and secondary features of a goal are presented, as well as the relationship of the curricular plan to institutional and professional goals. The sequence of curriculum planning steps are discussed, including goal analysis and revision; definition of performance objectives; performance objectives derived from goals; goal analysis to sequence learning; instructional objectives derived from goals; sequence of performance objectives; and analysis of goals for learning styles. A plan for the adoption of curriculum is then described, including a sample presentation to peers, sample goal hierarchy for related fields, and a step-by-step procedure. Fifteen factors involved in reducing resistance to change are summarized. Finally, a sample unit of instruction presents a performance objective, explanation of how objectives and learning activities are different, a sequence of instructional objectives, and a unit of instruction which includes three examples of a learning strategy, an outline of a unit, and evaluation methods. A 9-item annotated bibliography is included. (LMM)
