    Student thesis: Other thesis - CDU


    This case study describes the way in which the national agenda relating to Competency-Based Training was emplaced within the Communication section of the Department of Communication and Library Practice at the Institute of Technical and Further Education, Northern Territory University.

    The study concerns the actual implementation strategies resorted to and the reasons for such approaches. The realities of resource considerations are included, as are matters concerning staffing and other logistics. Staff attitudes towards the new system are mentioned, and comments relating to a student questionnaire on CBT are presented.

    Areas of concern which were noted while implementation was progressing are mentioned, as are the methods by which many of the problems were averted or dealt with. Statements are made about the ongoing concerns relating to CBT within Communication, and topics are suggested for further local research relating to specific matters.
