We chose high demand technical courses that were being offered for credit in our computer and health career programs. We incorporated a flexible curriculum design and delivery method to serve the students but we ensured that the curriculum design would qualify to be converted to credit hours.
Class time, location, and length are scheduling options that should be tailored to meet the needs of the community. Effective instruction should include a variety of instructional strategies and resource materials. This would include technology, cooperative learning, competency-based instruction, student-centered instruction, and teacher directed instruction. The students were given a syllabus, which gave them clear expectations of what the course would entail, to include the attendance and grading policy. The courses offered were Keyboarding for Computer Majors, IC-3 Computer, Wellness and Health Promotions and Medical Law and Ethics.
