The Project Consultant: His Unique Role.
The role proposed for the consultant is one of creating need and demonstrating that educational progress can be made by systematic and well managed approaches. The extent to which the project consultant is able to establish the same basic helping relationship with project staff members as he desires the staff to have with the clientele, will determine the degree of success of the project. Today the consultant is more of an expert on the process of change, of modifying attitudes and assisting in effective behavioral changes, than an expert on content. Information regarding content can be achieved by more effective means; textbooks, programmed instruction, and audio-visual media. If the consultant relegates his role to information dispensing, he will miss his opportunity to perform his unique function. (KJ)
