A Sourcebook for Reshaping the Community College: Curriculum Integration and the Multiple Domains of Career Preparation. Volume II: Samples of Career Preparation Innovations.
Badway, Norena; Grubb, W. Norton
This second volume of a sourcebook is a collection of 46 examples of innovative practices colleges and technical institutes are using to impart the seven domains of career preparation described in volume I. A table of contents in chart format provides this information: page, identification (model and description, college), academic level (transfer eligible, associate degree only, remedial/developmental, English as a Second Language/vocational English as a Second Language), and domains assessed (job specific, academic foundation, generic technical, utilizing systems, career exploration, work organization, education for citizenship). The last four examples are not curricular but organizational schemes to encourage faculty knowledge and administrative skills, so they do not have academic or domain designation. Each sample includes the following information: domain(s) of career preparation addressed, model of integrating academic study and career preparation, strategy, college (name and state), and contact person. In addition, each sample includes several of the following: career preparation innovation (capsule overview of a particular innovation adopted by the college); description (part of the course outline or a description of the innovative professional development or administrative arrangement); sample learning activities or student evaluation methods; topics, texts, course content, competencies, instructor comments; and program objectives and/or activities.
