Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
Developed by the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI), this report provides recommendations for improving articulation through state high schools, community colleges, and institutions of higher education. The recommendations are presented by field of study for business, clinical laboratory science, early childhood education, elementary education, secondary education, music, nursing, and psychology. Each program area includes a recommended list of general education core and area core courses, a description of the courses, and a list of IAI panel members. Selected recommendations for specific fields include the following: (1) adopt a framework for clinical laboratory science that defines specific educational curricula and competencies to prepare students for clinical lab practice; (2) students in secondary education teaching programs must select a major and a teaching minor from among those disciplines taught in high schools; (3) students who intend to major in music are encouraged to complete the Associate in Fine Arts degree in music instead of the Associate of Arts or Science degree; (4) a nursing model must incorporate conceptual, technical, contextual, interpersonal communication, integrative, and adaptive competencies for certified nurse assistants, licensed practical nurses, associate degree nurses, and baccalaureate degree nurses; and (5) students who intend to major in psychology must complete three courses from either developmental, abnormal, industrial/organizational, personality, or social psychology. Tables of clinical laboratory and nursing competencies are included. (TGI)
