1 Course Competency Development Dr. Mollie F. DeHart, District DirectorDenisse Cabrera, Curriculum SpecialistJulian Chiu, Curriculum Specialist
2 Objectives As a result of this workshop, participants will be able to: Utilize the State Course Numbering System (SCNS) and Curriculum Frameworks to research course competency content.Explain how course competencies are identified and developed and how they fit into the curriculum development cycle.Develop stem statements for course competencies.Develop “Student Performance Objective” statements (i.e., “by” statements).Select at least one Learning Outcome (LO) which corresponds to the stem and/or performance statements.Differentiate between cognitive, psychomotor and affective competencies.Submit new/revised competencies through the CurricUNET system and the Curriculum Approval Timeline.
3 A Course Competency is… A tool to support learning by:Focusing learning on the critical competencies needed for successProviding the framework for identifying learning options, curriculum, program needsSupporting effective forecasting of project-related learning requirementsProviding standards for determining how well learning has occurred by ensuring:CompetenceLearner performanceIntended result of instruction vs. the process of instruction

7 Statewide Course Numbering System (SCNS) What is SCNS?SCNS is a repository of course information for the entire state. Instructors who plan new courses can view descriptions of existing courses, both original course descriptions and statewide course profiles.Courses are organized by course categories, content areas and existing course offerings within those areas. Specific course information can be easily identified and retrieved.Statewide Articulation AgreementFlorida Administrative Code 6A , FAC, and FS establish provisions to facilitate the efficient transition of students through the various levels of the educational system, and ensure courses are equivalent if the appropriate faculty discipline committee has judged the content to be similar, including equivalency of faculty credentials.
8 SEARCHING SCNS FIND A COURSE Search or browse for institution and statewide courses.
9 SEARCHING SCNS CONT.Select the discipline only to search among all discipline prefixes. If prefix entered, there is no need to select the discipline.Note: You can perform other search entries (i.e. by title, description, century, etc.)
10 FLDOE Curriculum Frameworks The Division of Career and Adult Education publishes the curriculum frameworks aligned to the Career Clusters delineated by the U.S. Department of Education. The Career Cluster frameworks pages also contain links to Community College AS/AAS and CCC frameworks. To determine to which cluster a particular program is assigned, you may view an alphabetical list of all Secondary/PSAV CTE programs or AS/AAS/CCC programs.
11 Course Competency Template Competency DevelopmentInstructionsExampleStem/GoalStudent Learning Outcomes (SLO) FormatBegin with a general statement of knowledge, skills, and abilities:The student will learn… to demonstrate an understanding of curriculum development by:Performance/Objective StatementLead to the achievement of stems/goalsBegin with a verb (“ing” verb) and answer this question:Upon completion of the course how will the learner:Demonstrate competencyDemonstrate proficiencyComposing course proposals within established guidelinesLearning Outcomes (LO)Select at least one Learning Outcome (LO) which corresponds to your stem and/or performance statements.Communication,Critical Thinking,Numbers and Data,Computer/Technology, Usage, etc.
12 Sample of Course Competency The student will learn the fundamentals of developing course competencies by:Composing course competencies within established guidelinesEstablishing the appropriate Learning Outcomes, which correspond to the course objectiveUtilizing the resources available in the competency workshopCritical Thinking (3), and Information Literacy (4)Stem“By”StatementsTakeLOs
13 Competency vs. Activity A course competency describes student learning outcomes NOT instructor or student activities.Non-examples:“Viewing specific films and slides on various art movements.”“Attending various lectures.”“Studying about the Spanish borderlands and Mexican rule over California, Texas, and New Mexico, and knowing about the revolution in Texas, Manifest Destiny, and the war with Mexico.”“Reading relevant media and magazine articles, viewing selected television programs, reading related books and regularly attending class.”Change recognize competency.
14 Bloom’s Taxonomy Systematic grouping of outcomes Share characteristics Sequential and cumulative order
15 3 Types of Learning Domains: TOCognitive: mental skills (Knowledge)SIMPLE COMPLEXAffective: growth in feelings or emotional areas (Attitude)Psychomotor: manual or physical skills (Skills)Upon successful completion of this course, the student will demonstrate knowledge of the nature and evolution of behavior in animals by:listing the genetic and environmental contributions to behavior.distinguishing between innate and learned behavior.identifying the types of learning behavior.discussing the nature of animal cognition.evaluating the nature and significance of social behavior and sociobiology.
16 Cognitive Domain Knowledge: Recall data or information. CATEGORYKEY WORDS (VERBS)Knowledge: Recall data or information.defines, describes, identifies, lists, outlines, reproduces, selects, states.Comprehension: Understand the meaning, translation, interpolation, and interpretation of instructions and problems.converts, distinguishes, estimates, explains, interprets, summarizes.Application: Use a concept in a new situation or unprompted use of an abstraction.applies, constructs, demonstrates, modifies, prepares, uses.Analysis: Separates material or concepts into component parts so that its organizational structure may be understood.analyzes, compares, contrasts, differentiates, distinguishes, identifies, illustrates, relates, selects, separates.Synthesis: Builds a structure or pattern from diverse elements.categorizes, combines, compiles, composes, creates, designs, explains, generates, modifies, organizes, plans, relates, summarizes.Evaluation: Make judgments about the value of ideas or materials.compares, contrasts, critiques, describes, evaluates, explains, interprets, summarizes, supports.
17 Affective Domain CATEGORY KEY WORDS (VERBS) Receiving Phenomena: Awareness, willingness to hear, selected attention.describes, identifies, locates, names, selects, replies, uses.Responding to Phenomena: Active participation on the part of the learners. complies, discusses, performs, presents, reports, selects.Valuing: The worth or value a person attaches to a particular object, phenomenon, or behavior. completes, demonstrates, differentiates, explains, reports, selects.Organization: Organizes values into priorities by contrasting different values, resolving conflicts between them, and creating an unique value system. arranges, combines, compares, explains, formulates, identifies, integrates, modifies, organizes, prepares, synthesizes.Internalizing values (characterization): The behavior is pervasive, consistent, predictable, and most importantly, characteristic of the learner. displays, modifies, qualifies, solves, verifies.
18 EXAMPLE AND KEY WORDS (VERBS) Psychomotor DomainCATEGORYEXAMPLE AND KEY WORDS (VERBS)Perception: The ability to use sensory cues to guide motor activity. describes, differentiates, distinguishes, identifies, isolates, selects.Set: Readiness to act. It includes mental, physical, and emotional sets.displays, explains, shows, states.Guided Response: The early stages in learning a complex skill that includes imitation and trial and error.reproduce, responds.Mechanism: This is the intermediate stage in learning a complex skill. assembles, calibrates, constructs, displays, measures, mixes, organizes, sketches.Complex Overt Response: The skillful performance of motor acts that involve complex movement patterns. assembles, builds, constructs, displays, measures, mixes, organizes, sketches.Adaptation: Skills are well developed and the individual can modify movement patterns to fit special requirements.adapts, changes, rearranges, revises.Origination: Creating new movement patterns to fit a particular situation or specific problem.arranges, builds, combines, composes, constructs, creates, designs.
19 Upload Information Into CurricUNET Upon School/Discipline discussion and course information from SCNS (if any) begin to enter and develop the curriculum in the Curriculum Management System:Via this tool you will be able to create/build your courses and program information, including but not limited to:Course descriptionUnits/HoursRequisitesInstructional SupportFeesCourse Competencies and Student Learning OutcomesCourse Gordon RuleNote: All information must be entered into CurricUNET. For further information, refer to the Curriculum Instruction Manual , Create New Programs.
