Partners in Program Excellence. Instructor Handbook.
Florida State Univ., Tallahassee. Center for Instructional Development and Services.
This handbook is designed to help instructors and advisory committees interact effectively in the Partners in Program Excellence (PIPE) system. It describes a way to keep a local advisory committee involved throughout the life of the training program. The handbook takes the instructor and the advisory committee through the 10 activities into which the PIPE system divides the work of program improvement: identify major objectives of the program, develop a public relations and marketing plan, plan and implement curriculum, determine capability to implement curriculum, plan instructional strategies, develop procedures for determining the effectiveness of instruction, plan student placement strategies, assess overall program effectiveness, identify and plan needed program modifications, and submit program progress summary. Each activity is composed of four components: introduction, suggestions (sample tasks, objectives, strategies, and general considerations offered as possible approaches to the activity), developing the plan (discussion, decisions, and tasks undertaken by the instructor and program advisory committee), and case story (illustrations of how cooperative efforts have resulted in program improvement). Appendixes include material on working effectively with the program advisory committee and forms and transparency masters. (YLB)
