Modification of Three Clothing Diploma Programs in the Consumer and Hospitality Services Division.
Advincula-Carpenter, Marietta M.
A curriculum project modified the three occupational programs in clothing according to the results of the DACUM (Develop a Curriculum) process done in Summer 1992 and the needle trade industry surveys done in Fall 1992 and Summer 1993. Six procedures were used to develop the modified two-year alteration and textile services diploma program. First, a literature review obtained a summary of the concepts of curriculum evaluation and instructional design, opinions of experts on the use of DACUM in identifying current and future competencies of an occupation, and models and sample formats on modifying curriculum in an occupational area to meet industry needs. Second, the DACUM chart prepared by a vocational curriculum specialist was analyzed. Third, the results of surveys of local employers in the needle trades were analyzed. Fourth, a formative committee drafted recommendations for the modification of the vocational programs in the clothing area. Fifth, a summative committee reviewed the recommendations and formulated the curriculum of the proposed two-year diploma program in alteration and textile services that would replace the three existing clothing programs that they recommended be deleted. Sixth, the proposed program was submitted to the advisory committee which unanimously approved it. (Appendixes include original and modified catalog descriptions, survey results, advisory committee meeting minues, and DACUM panels preliminary report. Contains 18 references.) (YLB)
