The Development of a Strategic Plan To Provide a Multisite Electronic Engineering Technology Program at the Community College of Allegheny County.
Cunningham, Pearly
A project was undertaken to develop a strategic plan to implement a multisite electronic engineering technology (EET) program at Pennsylvania's Community College of Allegheny County. Specifically, the project sought to determine how electronic communication technologies could provide a virtual learning community for the program; appropriate plans for network communication, coordination between educational segments, and evaluation; and necessary changes in the program to adapt to the multisite format. Data were collected from a literature review, interviews with program coordinators of existing EET distance learning programs and directors of computer centers, and a review of the necessary hardware and software for the project. In addition, advisory group meetings were held with industry representatives and educators to develop and review the plan. As a result of the process, requirements were developed regarding the classroom model, faculty training, hardware and software, and the laboratory component. Appendixes provide the college's mission statement, a campus location map, an organizational chart of college divisions, a list of related programs, the new EET curriculum, assessment and planning charts, the coordinator and director interview forms, a list of advisory members, course syllabi, and the completed strategic plan for distance learning in EET. Contains 184 references. (HAA)
