Preparing Communication Consultants for a School District: A Study of Some Effects of Laboratory Training.
Macbeth, Paul R.
This paper describes a training program for communication consultants in a school district, and presents an evaluation of the effects of the program on participants. A 2-week laboratory provided an opportunity for the 23 trainees to practice diagnosing and intervening into team organizational processes and to try out exercises and techniques that would prove helpful in working with district groups. Training continued after the laboratory, with consultants attending the interventions carried out by the participants and providing feedback on performance. Three main evaluation results are analyzed in this paper: (1) the influence of participant characteristics on laboratory participation, learning during training, and effectiveness in the consultant role; (2) the relationships among laboratory participation, learning during training, and external criterion measures; and (3) the effect of organizational factors on laboratory participation, learning during training, and effectiveness in the consultant role.
