An On-Line Information Management System for Resources for Staff Development for the Professional Development Center Network.
Monroe, Eula Ewing
The Professional Development Center Network (PDC), a consortium of twenty public school districts, parochial schools, and Western Kentucky University, seeks to identify and secure resources to assist in the design and delivery of activities appropriate to the educational development of individual staff members through the online Information Management System. This system will be utilized by members and staff of the PDC Network as a vehicle for matching the talents and expertise of resource personnel with staff development needs. Two major programs allow for entering and updating data and allow the user to retrieve information by any of the variables included in the information form. The input of personnel involved in utilizing resources available to provide for activities for staff development through the PDC Network was obtained in making the determination of the following categories of information to be gathered: (1) title of offering; (2) number of participants; (3) duration; (4) mode of presentation; (5) participant group; (6) content area; (7) demographic data; and (8) evaluation. The Resources for Staff Development Information Form, the data gathering instrument, will be distributed with an accompanying cover letter, reminding the participant of the PDC Network and requesting information.
