Staff Development/Organization Development.
Dillon-Peterson, Betty, Ed.; And Others
Six topics relative to staff development are discussed. The first chapter discusses staff and organization development in a 1981 perspective. Both staff and organization development are necessary for planned change and school improvement. Both are important processes in personal and professional growth. The second chapter views staff development from the perspective of change in the individual. Several frameworks are provided which can be used to understand individual differences and to design staff development programs in such a matter as to capitalize on human variety. The third chapter deals with organizational development as a tool for educational change. The fourth chapter provides models for designing effective staff development programs. The fifth chapter describes methods for evaluating staff development. The evaluation component needs to provide information about the adequacy of the processes, the condition of the overall system, and the results of specific training. The sixth chapter describes a staff development scenario for the future in which scenes from a future teacher's life are included. (JN)
