Biomanufac. ed & the texas skill standards board l.fletcher ccp13

  1. 1. Developing BiomanufacturingSkills Standards in TexasPresented by:Linnea Fletcher, Ph.D.Austin Community CollegeBio-Link Co-PIlinneaf@austincc.edu512-223-5912
  2. 2. AGENDAPart I – Introduction to Texas SkillStandardsPart II – Development ofBiomanufacturing Skill Standards andProgram Recognition
  3. 3. What Are Skill Standards?Describe what the worker must know andto what level to perform the work, should betimeless:Critical Work Functions – principalresponsibilities (e.g. manage record keeping andcreate documents)Key Activities – major tasks required to achieveeach critical work function (prepare batch records,maintain logbooks)Performance criteria – standard or level to whichkey activity must be performed (document needs toprovide step by step instructions)
  4. 4. Occupational Knowledge, Skills &Conditions (e.g. form, template)Academic Knowledge & Skills –traditional subjects (e.g. writing andreading level)Employability Knowledge & Skills (e.g.soft skills-attention to detail)
  5. 5. Skill Standards As CurriculumComponents Critical Work Functions Course Content Key Activities Learning Outcomes Performance CriteriaOccupational Skills & AssessmentsKnowledgeStatement of Assessment
  6. 6. Texas 2-year BiotechnologyPrograms Adopted the Washington Skill Standards Six colleges with biotechnology AAS programs arerecognized by the state for adopting the skill standards Introduction to Biotech I and II Molecular Techniques Cell Culture Instrumentation Internship
  7. 7. Participating BiotechnologyPrograms
  8. 8.

  9. 9. Benefits of Statewide CommonAssessments “Brain Power” from more than oneprogram for determining assessments andbest practices Gain a statewide perspective Easy to articulate with other programs The possibility of universal 4 yeararticulation
  10. 10. And Best of AllTeaching and assessing thestandards means that:“Not only does the teacher knowwhat the student can do, but thestudent knows and understandswhat she or he can do.”
  11. 11. Texas Biotechnology Industry Needstechnicians Specializing in Biomanufacturing
  12. 12. Process for Determining Skill Standards forBiomanufacturing Establish statewide need If possible, start with a template of critical workfunctions, key activities, performance criteria… Develop and validate critical work functions andkey activities with a small group of peoplestatewide who do the job (also add in skill andknowledge requirements) Work with supervisors, to validate critical workfunctions and key activities and developperformance criteria (also add in skill andknowledge requirements) Determine reading, writing, mathematical,teamwork, and other soft skill levels Get approval from TSSB
  13. 13. Program Recognition School Approval for New Degree Plan (requiresindustry advisory board approval)Level Two Certificate in Biomanufacturing Introduction to Biotech I and II Quality Assurance for the Biosciences Molecular Techniques Cell Culture Introduction to Biomanufacturing (Undergraduate Research) Internship
  14. 14. Divide Up Key Activities Among theCoursesNew Courses: Quality Assurance (online) Biomanufacturing Undergraduate Research Old Courses who already have Skill StandardAlignment Introduction to Biotechnology I & II Molecular Techniques Cell Culture
  15. 15. Divide Up Key Activities Among theCoursesNew Courses: Quality Assurance (online) Biomanufacturing Undergraduate Research Old Courses who already have Skill StandardAlignment Introduction to Biotechnology I & II Molecular Techniques Cell Culture
  16. 16. Implementation Pilot first biomanufacturing course this Fall 2013 AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, CONSULT WITHOTHER PROGRAMS ACROSS THE STATE andthe NATION
