Technology for All: Pittsburg State Adds TE to General Curriculum
McNew, Philip
Tech Directions, v65 n6 p19-21 Jan 2006
In the fall of 1997, Pittsburg State University (PSU), Pittsburg, Kansas, held ribbon-cutting ceremonies on two major campus projects. The event that received the most media attention was the dedication of the University's $30 million Kansas Technology Center (KTC). The 260,000 square foot KTC would serve as the new home of the University's College of Technology (COT) and its related course-offerings. While the KTC dramatically changed the Pittsburg State campus, an evolutionary revision to the University's general education curriculum would impact students almost as much. In designing a new general education package, the College of Technology successfully lobbied for adding a technology component. COT began offering GT 190: Introduction to Technological Systems as part of the general curriculum. GT 190 is dedicated to developing technologically literate, critically thinking citizens and consumers. In this article, the author shares information on this course with other technology educators.
