Kranz, Peter L.; Steele, Richard A.; Lund, Nick L.; Cook, S. Bradford
Journal of Instructional Psychology, v31 n2 p179-185 Jun 2004
Graduates of the Tennessee Technological University graduate fisheries management program were surveyed and asked five open-ended questions related to their satisfaction with the program, particularly as it has impacted them in their later professional success. Respondents were also asked to suggest improvements in the program. They reported success and satisfaction for the most part, and offered an impressive array of recommendations to make the program more relevant and practical for fisheries biologists entering today's workforce. The three most common recommendations were to include more practical field experience, to address environmental issues more extensively, and to provide more exposure and practice using specific research and data analysis methods.
