2006-2010 College Goals with 2008-09 Planning Priorities

& Other Accomplishments
College Goal #1. Deliver quality programs and effective instruction that result in students achieving identified learning outcomes with an emphasis on critical thinking as outlined in CFCC’s Quality Enhancement Plan.
Accounting

Assessment Vehicle - To develop an assessment vehicle (or course) for the accounting students in their last semester.

  • Research into an Intermediate Accounting level practice set was conducted. No such usable practice set exists at this time, but one developer is working on one and asked if our students would “beta test” their practice set. Given the lack of free time in ACC 221 and computer labs, the offer was declined. The developer will re-contact next fall when the first version is published. It will be evaluated then for potential use in ACC 221 in the spring 2010 semester.

  • While ACC 227 Practices in Accounting is in the Combined Course Library as an accounting capstone course, we have determined that our curriculum is at the maximum number of hours and we do not intend to remove any classes to accommodate inclusion of this course.

To provide instructors of ACC 120 and ACC 121 with guidance as to what should be expected of students in these college-transfer courses.

  • ACC 120 and ACC 121 instructors will be meeting with the new lead accounting instructor to develop a standardized course and schedule for both of the classes. Implementation will occur no sooner than spring semester 2010 however, because in fall semester 2009 ACC 120 will be using a new edition of the textbook, while ACC 121 will still be using the older edition


Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration

Better troubleshooting skills in HVAC/R electricity- I would like to see all students have more confidence in their electrical troubleshooting skills. 80% of all service calls in the HVAC/R are Electrical. This means that students are leaving the classroom and entering the field need a great understanding in electrical troubleshooting.

  • I think the students are coming along great, and after this spring semester should be ready for a competency exam.

To give students a better understanding and working knowledge of water source and Geo- thermal systems

  • We will begin this in the summer semester, but we have started working with the water source in the lab.

With the rise in equipment cost, Zoning is becoming more popular in the HVAC industry. Zoning can cut a homeowners cost by using one system instead of two systems. Zoning can also play a role in heating and cooling bills for some people that may not need to heat and cool some areas of their home all the time.

  • We are now beginning to cover zone systems this semester, and will also touch on them next semester.

Architectural Technology

Graduates will be knowledgeable about Building Information Modeling (BIM) and demonstrate the ability to incorporate this data/information into construction documents used for the construction of buildings.

  • New BIM ware is available thru AutoDesk and is being taught in ARC 211 class. The software is called REVIT and is used in all other second year architectural classes to allow the students to become proficient in its use.

Graduates will be knowledgeable about construction site visitation and construction report writing. A successful student will be able to visit a building construction site and make an accurate written observation about activities and actions.

  • This priority is met in ARC 241-Construction Administration. Students visit several construction sites throughout the semester and are required to document site observations in an acceptable written format.

Graduates will have basic knowledge about techniques/equipment to digitally record architectural and construction relation actions and activities. A successful student will be able to accurately record and produce a digital history of a construction event.

  • This priority is also met in ARC 241-Construction Administration. Students visit construction sites to learn techniques of digital photography that are best suited to illustrate the construction process. These digital images are then incorporated into a written report illustrating site conditions and progress.


Associate Degree Nursing

Enhance the graduation rate by 3% for Associate Degree Nursing class of 2009 in an effort to provide Registered Nurses to meet the needs of the community.

  • Retention for the class of 2009 is currently 10% above the class of 2008. Final numbers will not be available until May.

Graduate Students that are prepared for entry level practice as a Registered Nurse.

  • 100% NCLEX-RN pass rate for the class of 2008. NCLEX-RN measures readiness for entry level practice.

Develop measures to enhance critical thinking skills of ADN students by fall 2009.

  • -Revision of the ADN curriculum to a concept-based curriculum is in progress. This revision is the result of a NCCCS curriculum improvement project. Plan to implement fall 2010. Concept-based curriculums have been shown to enhance student involvement in the learning process, thus enhancing critical thinking abilities.


Auto Body Repair

  • -This was a fall class. The starter and alternator stand we purchased helped a lot of the students with testing for the class. The ALLDATA program helped with wiring diagrams for look-up and use. I am sure all of the students liked the wiring practices we performed, soldering and butt-end connectors.

Upon completion, students should be able to perform basic diagnosis, measurement and repair of automotive engines using appropriate tools, equipment, procedures, and service information.

  • -This was a fall night class. Students showed good diagnosing and disassembly skills of engine. Trevor and students were able to thin down the unwanted engines in the shop due to missing, broken or irreplaceable components. They were also able to mount, wire and run the Merlin and a small block Chevy engine on a stand.

Upon completion, students should be able to describe safety and environmental procedures, terms associated with automobiles, identify and use basic tools and shop equipment.

  • -This was a fall day class. Students showed understanding of basic tools and safety. I received positive feedback about some of the safety hands-on quizzes I had them to perform. Video clips of safe and unsafe workforce activities that students researched. I would like to look into some newer measuring tool videos seemed to be a common hard task for majority of students.


Basic Law Enforcement Training

  • -This objective will be complete in the summer portion of the curriculum.


Boat Manufacture and Service

Students will use donated Hydrographic Survey Launch as a lab for electrical, plumbing, and engine repair and restoration. With the assistance of Boat Building, the Hydrographic Survey Launch will be made safe for use as a research vessel for the Marine Tech program.

  • -The hydrographic Survey Launch has served as a successful lab for students to inspect electrical and plumbing systems aboard a floating boat. Restoration of select components will continue in the spring and summer semesters.

Students will construct training aids in the form of modular carts for the installation of plumbing and electrical systems. Plumbing projects performed will include correct terminology and efficient use of tools and equipment.

  • -The students’ construction of the modular carts and installation of plumbing and electrical systems has proved to be invaluable for comprehension of yacht quality installations. Students enrolled in this program are now fluent in the terminology and proper use of the tools associated with this type of work.

Spray Booth - Students will learn to spray paints and varnish in a commercial grade spray booth using conventional and HVLP techniques. Students will be exposed to production grade chopper gun and gel-coat systems used in boat building facilities. Proper safety measures will be demonstrated by students when working inside spray booth.

  • -A commercial grade spray booth has been acquired and installed in room W-050. Students have recently begun painting projects and will gain exposure to the chopper gun and gel-coat system during a small seminar which is to be headed by a representative from the manufacturer of the equipment.


Business Administration

Critical Thinking in business administration courses- Show that critical thinking skills development is being integrated in activities in at least five courses taken by business administration students.

  • This goal is in process and will be complete by the end of the spring 2009 semester. The critical thinking examples are complete and the menu of activities will go out to faculty shortly. The implementation process will be of limited duration for faculty, allowing them to accomplish their portion of the goal within the remainder of the semester.

Students need to recognize complex and difficult moral problems in the workplace and they need to accept that it is not enough to simply reach a decision, but should also think about how it will benefit some and/or harm others and be able to defend their decision.

  • This goal was completed during the fall 2008 semester. Activities conducted in the completion of this goal will be incorporated into our BUS-240 Business Ethics course offerings in subsequent semesters.

Given the need to clearly differentiate between nearly identical products, services and business opportunities, students should have a clear understanding of marketing and applying its lessons to a product or service.

  • This goal was completed during the fall 2008 semester. Activities conducted in the completion of this goal will be incorporated into our MKT-120 Principles of Marketing and MKT-223 Customer Services offerings in subsequent semesters.
