Leadership Development in Evaluation for an Age of Accountability.
Farmer, James A., Jr.; And Others
The Western Region AMIDS Evaluation Team examined a variety of approaches to leadership development which would make it possible for adult, business, technical and vocational educators to become knowledgeable in evaluation. The following three intents were specified for the leadership development project: (1) to provide participants with an introductory program in evaluative theory and methodology, (2) to develop basic evaluative skills concerning techniques for evaluation of on-going programs in adult, business, technical and vocational education, (3) to provide participants with sufficient reference materials and direction to enable them to undertake subsequent, individual study activities in the area of evaluation. A one-day workshop was planned for 21 participants. An inductive-deductive learning approach was selected for both the workshop and the individual study phase of this leadership development activity. During the first hour of the workshop, a "case model" was distributed. The afternoon activities started with a team teaching session dealing with the concepts of performance standards and standards of excellence. The last hour of the workshop was devoted to a presentation of evaluation techniques and methodology appropriate to adult, business, technical and vocational education. In general the participants were very positive in their reactions to the workshop. (CK)
