Proposed Curriculum Design for a 2-Year College of Technology.
Wang, Yen-Zen
This paper presents a curriculum-oriented model focusing on curriculum revision of the design and structures of two-year academic institutes of technology. This research uses the Department of Business and Technology Management, which is being set up in the Far East Institute of Technology (Taiwan), as an example and works out the new models focusing on a vocational capacity competence-oriented curriculum. Part I, the introduction, summarizes the background, motivation, method, and purpose of the research. Part II discusses the problems of the current curriculum design, including: the continuity issue of the technological curriculum design and development; lack of practical courses and overlapping; the problems of pursuing further education; the abilities of the applicants; the problems and bottleneck of the radical shift in industrial development; and the problem of course enrollment, including the principles of practicality, perspectives, flexibility, integration, and continuity. Part III is a literature review covering: the curriculum model designed and guided by the Ministry of Education in Taiwan; a developmental model for a technological and vocational education curriculum; the cluster model for curriculum design; and the Skilbeck style of course development model on the school basis. Part IV describes the model of curriculum design for two-year technological and vocational university education. Part V presents a case study of the Far East Institute of Technology to clarify the model. Part VI offers conclusions and suggestions. (MES)
