College of Aeronautics (WAERO)
Advanced Aviation/Aerospace Curriculum Development
This course will investigate the traditional manner of curriculum development and then proceeds to prepare an instructional framework for a variety of aviation and aerospace instructional programs. The course focuses on instructional strategies and delivery modalities, as well as the impact of social forces, in aviation/aerospace educational environments. Systematic approaches to planning, designing, implementing and evaluating curriculum development will also be explored.

This course is a foundation for the development of instructional programs for the industry. The course investigates the historical, societal, psychological, and philosophical issues that affect curricular decisions and to provide the student with the knowledge necessary to define the area of curriculum and to develop appropriate aviation and aerospace instructional programs.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

1. Describe the evolution of curriculum development in traditional and aviation/aerospace adult education.

2. Apply documented models of curriculum development to instructional environments in aviation/aerospace education.

3. Discuss instructional strategies as they relate to curriculum development in advanced aviation and aerospace training and educational environments.

4. Evaluate the appropriate delivery modalities for specific aviation and aerospace training and educational environment.

5. Analyze the impact of philosophical, psychological, historical, and social forces on curriculum development.

6. Use a systematic process, based on learning theory, to plan, design, implement, and evaluate curriculum development.

7. Develop education and training program outcomes addressing stakeholders’ needs.

8. Develop course learning outcomes that support education and training program outcomes.

9. Develop and evaluate assessment tools that measure program and course learning outcomes.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

10. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter (effective July 1, 2013).

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
