Last week I was part of an incredible group of people who came together to discuss how the court reporting program at LCC could be revamped to become more successful and more relevant.
We have the President of the college, VP of Curricula, Dean of Technology programs, Registrar, and two other admins - that's just from the college. Several colleagues came from all over or participated by telephone. We even had a local judge offer his comments.
The program pretty much withered and died over the past couple years, changing from a brick-and-mortar program and morphing into an online program; alas, it could not make its changes adequately. The uniqueness of the program, though, still entices the administration and they want to move forward.
The entire program is being looked at from the job description for the teacher and any assistants, the entire two-year program and course offerings, the methods to be taught (voice and steno), the delivery methods, etc.
With all the great minds participating, if it doesn't work, it won't be for lack of trying.
If you have ANY input that you would like me to share with the Advisory Board, please let me know!
