Professional Technical Education – Improvement (4B)
Many program improvements have come to fruition through advisory committee input
after a review of program data and course level outcomes. These include:
Business, Office and Technology (BOT):
Recent improvements in the BOT division include
A focused editing and proofreading grammar class for BOT students
New Intermediate Technical Certificate for CNT and Web Development students and
reworked degrees in Marketing and Management
Introduction of new courses such as “emerging trends” courses to provide a course
to introduce “hot topics” such as mobile development.
Introduction of BOT 150 The Employment Strategies course, which culminates in
mock interviews for students.
Mechanical Trades:
Advisory committee meetings are held for each program once or twice a year and often
lead to improvements in curriculum or methodology. Advisory boards are composed of
industry stakeholders, program graduates, and local employers. Changes are made based
on the advisory committee recommendations and other measures listed on the outcomes
assessment form. Recent changes include improvements in helping students develop soft
skills and professionalism. These changes are posted and made available to appropriate
constituencies.
Diesel and Auto Programs are reviewed and accredited by the National Automotive
Technicians Education Foundation
.
The Welding Technology program trains to industry accepted American Welding Society
(AWS) standards. The acceptance criteria of these standards is published by the AWS in
their QC-10 and QC-11 documents for entry level I and entry level II welders.
The advisory committee confirms that these standards are met. Course level outcomes are
also used for planning purposes and available for the campus to view.
Health Care Technologies:
Individual instructors use outcomes analysis to improve their courses. These improvements
come either in the form of changes to instructional method or in material covered.
