cognitive strategies, and teaching practices that reflect the content and intellectual goals of best practice in

SOFTWARE TRAINING PROGRAM TARGETS COMMUNITY COLLEGES: A training program that aims to help information technology instructors at technical and community colleges keep current on new technologies. According to Duncan G. Burgess of the National Workforce Center for Emerging Technologies, there is typically a gap of 18 to 24 months between when new software is available in the commercial sector and when IT instructors at community colleges are trained on it. The project, funded largely by Microsoft, will start in Washington and Texas, with plans to include all 50 states within 5 years. Topics for the training will include Java, Linux, and network security. Chronicle of Higher Education, 26 April 2002 http://chronicle.com/free/2002/04/2002042601t.htm
