Principles for Developing Credit-Based Instructional Programs with a Business, Industry, or Other Non-Collegiate Organization. Self-Regulation Initiatives: Resource Documents for Colleges and Universities. No. 1.
American Council on Education, Washington, DC.
Guidelines on the design and operation of credit-based instructional programs for employees of a business, industry, or other non-collegiate groups (e.g., government unit, association, union) are offered for colleges and universities. The guidelines apply to on- or off-campus instructional programs, including independent study, work experience programs, and programs delivered by various technologies. Advice concerning curriculum development and instruction for students who are employees of a non-collegiate organization include: assessing the needs of potential learners; taking into account the adult student's previous postsecondary-level learning; and providing a description of the instructional program or course. Additional guidelines cover: support services, credentials offered by the institution, administrative arrangements, and the content of written agreements by which colleges offer educational services for employees of a non-collegiate organization. Recommended administrative practices include: an officially designated liaison representative at both the college and the cooperating non-collegiate organization; and compensation for faculty comparable to the rate paid for similar services afforded in campus-based or extension classes.
