Purpose 21,I Introduction, This document is the Program Standard for the Graphic Design program of. instruction leading to an Ontario Advanced College Diploma delivered by Ontario. colleges of applied arts and technology MTCU funding code 61820. Development of System Wide Program Standards, In 1993 the Government of Ontario initiated program standards development. with the objectives of bringing a greater degree of consistency to college. programming offered across the province broadening the focus of college. programs to ensure graduates have the skills to be flexible and to continue to. learn and adapt and providing public accountability for the quality and relevance. of college programs, The Program Standards and Evaluation Unit of the Ministry of Training Colleges. and Universities have responsibility for the development review and approval of. system wide standards for programs of instruction at Ontario colleges of applied. arts and technology,Program Standards, Program standards apply to all similar programs of instruction offered by colleges.
across the province Each program standard for a postsecondary program. includes the following elements, Vocational standard the vocationally specific learning outcomes which. apply to the program of instruction in question, Essential employability skills the essential employability skills learning. outcomes which apply to all programs of instruction and. General education requirement the requirement for general education. in postsecondary programs of instruction, Collectively these elements outline the essential skills and knowledge that a. student must reliably demonstrate in order to graduate from the program. Individual colleges of applied arts and technology offering the program of. instruction determine the specific program structure delivery methods and other. curriculum matters to be used in assisting students to achieve the outcomes. articulated in the standard Individual colleges also determine whether additional. local learning outcomes will be required to reflect specific local needs and or. I Introduction, The Expression of Program Standards as Vocational Learning. Vocational learning outcomes represent culminating demonstrations of learning. and achievement They are not simply a listing of discrete skills nor broad. statements of knowledge and comprehension In addition vocational learning. outcomes are interrelated and cannot be viewed in isolation of one another As. such they should be viewed as a comprehensive whole They describe. performances that demonstrate that significant integrated learning by graduates. of the program has been achieved and verified, Expressing standards as vocational learning outcomes ensures consistency in.
the outcomes for program graduates while leaving to the discretion of individual. colleges curriculum matters such as the specific program structure and delivery. The Presentation of the Vocational Learning Outcomes. The vocational learning outcome statements set out the culminating. demonstration of learning and achievement that the student must reliably. demonstrate before graduation, The elements of the performance for each outcome define and clarify the level. and quality of performance necessary to meet the requirements of the vocational. learning outcome However it is the performance of the vocational learning. outcome itself on which students are evaluated The elements of performance. are indicators of the means by which the student may proceed to satisfactory. performance of the vocational learning outcome The elements of performance. do not stand alone but rather in reference to the vocational learning outcome of. which they form a part,The Development of a Program Standard. In establishing the standards development initiative the Government determined. that all postsecondary programs of instruction should include vocational skills. coupled with a broader set of essential skills This combination is considered. critical to ensuring that college graduates have the skills required to be. successful both upon graduation from the college program and throughout their. working and personal lives, A program standard is developed through a broad consultation process involving. a range of stakeholders with a direct interest in the program area including. employers professional associations universities secondary schools and. program graduates working in the field in addition to students faculty and. administrators at the colleges themselves It represents a consensus of. 2 I Introduction, participating stakeholders on the essential learning that all program graduates. should have achieved,Updating the Program Standard.
The Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities will undertake regular. reviews of the vocational learning outcomes for this program to ensure that the. Graphic Design Program Standard remains appropriate and relevant to the. needs of students and employers across the Province of Ontario To confirm that. this document is the most up to date release please contact the Ministry of.
