Developing a Curriculum

DACUM is a newer technique, originated in Canada and popularized by vocational education in the United States. The DACUM process involves role incumbents and supervisors for up to several days with a trained facilitat9r to generate the information. The result is a listing of tasks and activities for any particular job. According to Dr. Robert Norton of Ohio State University DACUM operates on three assumptions: (a) expert workers can define their job more accurately than anyone else; (b) an effective way to describe a job is to define the tasks expert workers perform; and (c) all tasks demand certain knowledge, skills, tools, and attitudes in order to be performed correctly.
