A New Source for Industrial Technology Education Teachers.
Rogers, George E.
The Industrial Education (IE) Program in the Teachers College at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) is reversing the national trend of a shortage of qualified industrial technology education (ITE) graduates. The program's growth, 386 percent in 3 years, has been accomplished by using an established technical training environment--Nebraska's community colleges. The IE Program has established articulation agreements with three of Nebraska's six community colleges whose students can transfer to UNL after completion of an associate degree in ITE. Issues in exploring a possible community college articulation agreement are as follows: a 2+2 academic transfer agreement congruent with the community college's mission; an easy fit of the transfer program into the community college's delivery system; support of the community college faculty and administration; and meeting the university's entrance requirements. UNL has used three approaches when designing the associate degree offering: using an existing associate degree; modifying an existing associate degree program; and developing a new program. The associate degree transfer agreements established by UNL with the community colleges entail a 50/50 mix of general studies and technical coursework, plus educational psychology. The technical hours should be selected to parallel those a university student would complete to allow the transfer student to enter as a junior. (Appendixes include the UNL program of study and articulation agreements.) (YLB)
