A Staff Development Program for the Extension Department, the University of British Columbia. Occasional Papers in Continuing Education, No.2.
Blaney, John P.
The newly formulated staff development program for professional university adult educators at the University of British Columbia entails the establishment of basic competencies, a seminar and independent study (selected readings) program, and regular staff seminars to help to enable supervisors to clarify and practice new learning. Basic tasks and professional competencies of extension supervisors include setting program objectives, identifying student needs, determining evaluation procedures, selecting content, processes, resources, and facilities, evaluating the program as a whole, and reporting and other administrative procedures. The independent study outline matches specific readings or groups of readings to specific tasks and competencies. (The document includes 35 references and a consideration of desirable characteristics of professional program planners.) (ly)
