National Workshop to Improve Post-Secondary Vocational-Technical Personnel Development. Final Report.
Norton, Robert E.; And Others
A project was conducted to assist post-secondary vocational-technical teacher educators and staff development personnel in improving staff development programs in two-year post-secondary institutions. Thirty-one applicants were selected to participate in a national workshop. These applicants included vocational-technical teacher educators and administrators and faculty members who are responsible for staff development efforts in two-year postsecondary institutions. Through a variety of learning experiences structured in a competency-based format, participants were provided an opportunity to acquire those competencies required to develop and implement a competency-based staff development (CBSD) program. Workshop instructional strategies included small and large group presentations/discussions, individual activities, case studies, role playing, and hands-on activities. During each workshop, participants formulated a plan for implementing a CBSD program. Evaluation data obtained immediately upon the conclusion of the workshop revealed that the participants perceived an increase in their level of competence with regard to the performance objectives addressed in the workshop. (The implementation guide used in the workshop is also available in ERIC as CE 021 469.) (Author/BM)
