Saitama JALT:

Program Revision

Date: Sunday, January 9th, 2005 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Dann Gossman, Kanto Gakuen University

What’s the first thing you think of doing when "Program Revision" becomes necessary? If your first reaction is to reach for the publishers' catalogues to see what new texts are available, you may want to re-think the entire process.
In this presentation, Dann Gossman proposes a set of questions to help in discovering and focusing the environment in which the program will operate, and help confirm the various types of resources available to you. Using such focused data, you'll be able to prepare realistic objectives to guide the process of defining the course or courses in the new program.
Ideas for this process will be based on models adapted from organizational development and product improvement, and Gossman's experience working with these models as a consultant in industry, and in the on-going revision of the program at his university. While the examples he'll use refer specifically to his university, many of the ideas are readily adaptable to other situations and levels of education.
