Training Over Time: A Field-Based Model for Inservice Delivery.
Fiechtl, Barbara; And Others
A field based inservice training program designed to update teaching skills of professionals working with young mainstreamed handicapped children is described. Two programs--Using Skills Effectively and Using Resources Effectively--were conducted in cycles with 73 elementary regular and special education teachers and daycare providers. Class experiences are alternated with work on the job. Sample objectives and progress forms are included. Training results are reported to seven cycles and are grouped by age of children taught. Child performance data were obtained. Followup data indicated that 60% of the trainees who responded 6 weeks after training used their training with other children. Considerations of motivation's effect on performance are addressed. Advantages of the field based model include opportunities for application of the skills, with feedback. (CL)
