Laser Electro-Optic Technology. Florida Vocational Program Guide.
University of South Florida, Tampa. Dept. of Adult and Vocational Education.
This program guide identifies primary considerations in the organization, operation, and evaluation of a laser electro-optic technology program. An occupational description and program content are presented. A curriculum framework specifies the exact course title, course number, levels of instruction, major course content, laboratory activities, special notes, major course concepts, and intended outcomes. Student performance standards are a resource list of job-specific competencies. The next section addresses key factors that must be considered when implementing the program: teacher characteristics, conventional instructional methods, student admissions criteria, cooperative education, and student organization participation. A list of suggested instructional resources is organized under each outcome shown in the curriculum framework. Other contents include the following: facility design recommendations; information on safety, maintenance, and liability; suggested equipment list with tools and items of equipment listed under each outcome corresponding to the curriculum framework; and information on professional development (teacher technical updating and teacher standards). A Career Merit Achievement Plan (Career MAP) displays the student performance standards required by the local education agency and documents students' level of achievement. (YLB)
