The Design and Implementation of Information Systems for Pupil Personnel Services. Final Report.
Walz, Garry R.; Urbick, Thelma
Student personnel workers and services have increased without parallel increase in research in this area. To update and augment existing research skills, including knowledge of computers and computer language, to work toward a more adequate interdisciplinary conceptual base, and to encourage the establishment of information centers in the participants' own locales, an intensive, workshop on information systems was sponsored the week of March 13-17 in Dallas, Texas, prior to the National Convention of the American Personnel and Guidance Association. Some 54 participants representing a diversity of student personnel positions attended in teams of two to four members. Team attendance was used to increase the likelihood that the workshop participants would organize their own information systems and undertake needed research. Among the means used to reach the instructional goals were: large and small group information sessions, opportunities to hear and confer with consultants, a counselor's information game, and orientation on methods used by the Educational Research Information Centers (ERIC). Follow-up studies will attempt to evaluate the workshop approach in stimulating the establishment of information systems in local areas. (TU)
