Task Analysis and Job Descriptions for Robotics/Automated Systems Technicians. Final Report. Volume 1.
Hull, Daniel M.; Lovett, James E.
The Robotics/Automated Systems Technician (RAST) project developed a robotics technician model curriculum for the use of state directors of vocational education and two-year college vocational/technical educators. A baseline management plan was developed to guide the project. To provide awareness, project staff developed a dissemination plan (articles in major publications), prepared and mailed a project abstract, presented three papers at conferences, and delivered a product report. A panel of experts was assembled as a project advisory committee. The project produced a state-of-the-art report, robotics/automated systems task analysis and job competency report, and teaching/learning modules and new module outlines for a RAST curriculum. Recommendations were the development of modular instructional materials to support the six specialty courses in the RAST curriculum and the undertaking of similar curriculum projects to provide national models for technician education/training on other emerging, advanced technology areas. (Appendixes, amounting to approximately four-fifths of the report, include samples of visibility activities, information activities (project fact sheet, project brochure, and conference papers), advisory committee meeting minutes, robotics/automated systems task analysis listing, and core curriculum explanation.)
