Provincially and Locally Initiated Curriculum Program Assessment, Final Report.
This report is an independent assessment of the Provincially Initiated Curriculum (PIC) and Locally Initiated Curriculum (LIC) for British Columbia's Centre for Curriculum, Transfer and Technology (C2T2), which manages both PIC and LIC projects. The report makes four recommendations for C2T2's consideration: (1) a renewed emphasis on communication regarding the availability of curriculum products and on positive initiatives in curriculum development; (2) a review of the structures and processes of PIC and LIC projects; (3) a project management process that improves the timely completion of curriculum projects; and (4) an enhanced recognition of C2T2's role in marketing curriculum products. C2T2 hopes to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the programs in order to maintain and improve the quality of their marketing service. A small sample of 38 administrators, faculty, and educational coordinators responded to survey questions. This paper analyzes the findings of the survey in seven different areas: (1) the selection process for the projects; (2) completion and distribution for the projects; (3) the benefits to institutions; (4) the benefits to students; (5) marketing curriculum projects; (6) C2T2's role in curriculum development; and (7) return on investment. Appendices include data tables, the survey form, and a summary of responses. (NB)
