Clark, Donald L.; And Others
The Tech-Prep Statewide Professional Development Consortium of Texas supplemented and complemented professional development activities done within 25 local tech prep consortia to assist in full implementation of the tech prep initiative. Needs analyses identified major areas of emphasis, assessed the current level of tech prep knowledge and activity in preservice teacher preparation programs, and determined postsecondary requirements to be addressed in professional development activities. A national survey identified experts/presenters in different aspects of tech prep. Nine workshops were conducted for teams of teachers, counselors, and administrators at secondary and postsecondary levels. A STARLINK teleconference was designed to increase understanding of the efforts, including the educational restructuring efforts, that are underway in Texas, to develop the workforce, and to get stronger commitments to tech prep. Formal tech prep presentations were given, three teacher education grants were awarded, and the consortium served in a coordinating role in the presentation of two tech prep graduate-level courses. Project assessment included evaluations of the workshops and teleconference. (The 15-page report is followed by supporting documentation for project activities. Appendixes include the following: committee and staff meeting minutes, needs analysis instruments and results, executive summaries for workshops, teleconference report, products of the grants, course syllabi, workshop evaluations, and tech prep presenter database.)
