Handbook for Program Developers of Associate of Applied Science and Business Degrees at Lima Technical College.
Casto, Robert A.
Intended as a resource for program developers, this handbook illustrates the process of developing program proposals for the associate of applied science and business (AASB) degrees at Lima Technical College (LTC), in Ohio. Following an introduction, section 1 discusses the potential reasons for the addition of a program to the LTC curriculum. Section 2 provides Ohio Board of Regents check sheets for gaining approval of two-year AASB degrees and two-year programs in general. Section 3 presents an overview of 33 steps in developing an AASB program; reviews the role of advisory committees in the process; and provides discussions of the goals of curriculum development for applied technical degrees, undertaking needs assessments, and cost considerations for new programs. Section 4 reviews the completion of the proposal, including the submission of preliminary and formal proposals, and provides helpful hints for submitting the formal proposal. The final two sections contain a glossary of terms and references. Appendixes provide sample materials related to the development of an asphalt and concrete technology program, including an agenda from a planning meeting, a description of advisory committee activities, a list of program and coordinator skills and competencies, a needs survey instrument, and the Ohio Board of Regents operating manual for two-year campus programs. Contains 13 references. (TGI)
