Mitchell, Barbara J.
This booklet, the second in a series of four volumes on the Designing a Curriculum (Dacum) process, is intended to familiarize prospective Dacum workshop participants with the goals and procedures of the workshop. The first section of the booklet comprises a description of a Dacum workshop as a means of bringing together educators and employers to develop a competency-based training program designed to produce graduates for employment in career, technical, and vocational fields. Discussed next are reasons for having a Dacum workshop, numbers and types of workshop participants, the roles of various workshop participants, and the usual locations for holding Dacum workshops. The second half of the booklet, a description of the typical Dacum workshop agenda, outlines the following workshop activities: orientation, establishment of the title and scope of the occupation under discussion, identification of the general areas of competence required by the occupation, identification of the enabling skills for performance of the occupation, and review and refinement of the initial charting of areas of competence and enabling skills. Concluding the booklet is a brief explanation of the development and review of draft copies of the competence chart. (MN)
