Collegiate Aviation Review, 1998
This document contains four peer-reviewed papers about university-level aviation education that were presented at the 1998 Fall Education Conference of the University Aviation Association. "Setting the Foundation for Effective Learning: Utilizing the Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor Domains to Establish Rigorous Performance Learning Objectives in Postsecondary Aviation Programs" (Jeffrey A. Johnson, Michael D. Ferguson) makes the argument that rigorous, well-developed performance learning objectives provide the underlying foundation for effective learning and accountability to government agencies, organizations, and the public. The results of a study conducted to identify criteria supporting a definition or theory of quality within four-year aviation programs in the United States are detailed in "Developing a Model of Four-Year Aviation Program Quality: A Grounded Theory Approach" (Paul D. Lindseth). "The Navstar Global Positioning System: A Global Utility?" (Irene A. Miller) considers pertinent legal and policy issues that will affect the development of Global Positioning System (GPS) policy, including liability, sovereignty, and GPS availability. The findings of a nationwide survey of a random sample of 200 airport managers regarding the education needed by future airport managers are outlined in "Postsecondary Aviation Education: Preparing Students to Manage Airports of the 21st Century" (C. Daniel Prather). The survey instrument is included. All four papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
