Preparing Instructional Developers for the Initial Client Conference.
Price, Robert D.
This paper examines the principles and concepts of several different processes and models of professional-client interaction in the initial face to face interview--Davies' approach, Silber's model, Shein's process consultation model, Havelock's change agent model, medical problem solving processes, and counseling processes. Conclusions drawn from a recent research project, which used a content analysis method to identify and categorize behaviors of professional instructional developers in the initial interview, are presented. It is suggested that instructional developers should master certain consultation competencies, which are identified from the literature and research, and some methods for training in these competency areas are proposed.
