Re-imagining the Meta-goals: In-conference Worskhop
The ITAA Curricular Development and Review Committee hosted a workshop on November 8, 2018 at ITAA’s 2018 annual conference in Cleveland Ohio. The purpose of the session was to gather ideas and opinions from ITAA members regarding the ITAA Meta-goals in preparation for a comprehensive review and revision of the document. The workshop focused on two questions: 1), In what ways can the Meta-goals be revised/updated to more closely reflect the skills, knowledge and competencies that graduates of four-year university textile and apparel programs need to be successful? What is missing? What is not needed? 2) In what ways can the Meta-goals be improved to make them more user-friendly? Products of the workshop will be content analyzed to identify major issues and action items to inform the revision process.
