Abstract

The ITAA Meta-goals (MGs) prescribe a framework of discipline-specific, disciplinegeneral and professional skills supporting the development of competent professionals. The MGs were developed in 1994-95 by the ITAA Curriculum Development and Review Committee (CDR), using input from membership at a town hall meeting at the 1994 annual conference. A revised version was developed by the CDR committee with feedback from ITAA members and industry professionals and adopted by the ITAA Council (ITAA Meta-goals, 2008).

Keywords: competencies, curriculum
