Program Issues Facing the Two-Year and Community College
The two-year and community college information technology department faces an environment that is different from the typical four-year school. Our students come to us with widely differing goals and starting skills than do the four-year students who are working towards a bachelor's degree and have relatively close skill levels due to entrance requirements. Furthermore, we often work with lower levels of funding, and various government sponsored economic development and workforce-training programs that limit what we can do. Most current educational literature approaches curriculum and program development from a four-year frame of reference. This session will address some of the issues facing two-year schools, as well as possible approaches that can be taken.
