INSERVICE TRAINING FOR VOCATIONAL TEACHERS IN UTAH. FINAL REPORT.
KNOLL, PETER F., JR.; STEPHENS, JOHN F.
THE SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES OF THIS INVESTIGATION WERE TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT OF UTAH'S INSERVICE TRAINING PROGRAM, COMPARE IT WITH THAT OF OTHER STATES, DETERMINE ITS EFFECTIVENESS, AND ASCERTAIN PROBLEM AREAS AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT. DATA WERE COLLECTED BY A SURVEY OF OTHER STATE PROGRAMS, PERSONAL INTERVIEWS WITH STATE VOCATIONAL SPECIALISTS, AND A SURVEY OF STATE VOCATIONAL TEACHERS. THE CONCLUSIONS WERE--(1) A SYSTEMATIC METHOD OF SCHEDULING IS NEEDED TO COORDINATE THE ENTIRE INSERVICE TRAINING PROGRAM, (2) THE PRESENT PROGRAM SHOULD PLACE MORE EMPHASIS ON DOING RATHER THAN TELLING, (3) FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE SHOULD BE OFFERED TO TEACHERS TO ENCOURAGE PARTICIPATION, (4) WORK EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED, AND (5) MODERN TECHNIQUES SUCH AS MICRO-TEACHING SHOULD BE INCORPORATED INTO THE INSERVICE TRAINING PROGRAM. THE APPENDIXES CONTAIN INFORMATION ON UTILIZING A KEY-SORT CARD IN SCHEDULING INSERVICE COURSES AND UTILIZING MICRO-TEACHING IN INSERVICE EDUCATION, RESULTS OF A TRADES AND INDUSTRIES STUDY IN COLORADO CONCERNING INSERVICE EDUCATION, AND THE QUESTIONNAIRE AND TABULATION OF QUESTIONNAIRE RESULTS.
