Michigan Adult Education Staff Development Plan, November, 1978-October, 1979.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
This adult education long-range staff development plan proposes a cooperative network to have impact on a minimum of 600 practitioners each year it is in full operation. In the first year, three elements will be put into operation. First, a staff development collaborative consisting of representatives of key agencies and groups to initiate, direct, and monitor the implementation of the plan will be established. Second, staff development facilitators will be identified to stimulate the development of local and area staff development planning and programming and to link resources to the adult educators who need them. Third, small grants and other incentives will stimulate local district and area staff development. In the second and following years of the plan, staff development leadership training of program administrators and teacher leaders will occur. They will be trained to initiate and generate staff development processes in their districts and areas. The plan identifies a variety of funding resources and urges adult educators to use all of these sources to offer staff development opportunities and activities. (An evaluation design is included that provides for analyzing and modifying the plan, the program, and the process each year, as well as a final evaluation of the impact of the staff development plan on practitioners and students alike.)
