Report of a National Evaluation of the Development Program.
In 1976 the Schools Commission (Australia) commenced a program of evaluation of its specific-purpose programs in order to obtain objective assessments of the impact of these programs and to determine ways in which they might be improved. One of the programs chosen for evaluation was the Development Program. This report discusses the design and significance of the Program itself, the implementation of Schools Commission emphases in the program, several school-centered teacher development projects, and the parameters and value of several long-term courses that emerged from the Program operation. Appendixes include material concerning: Commonwealth funding for Development Program purposes, teacher evaluation, inservice education, professional associations in Australia, the Southern Teachers Centre, the In-Depth Curriculum Studies Program, and the Townsville College of Advanced Education. A bibliographic reference section and data tables are also included. (LH)
