Development of a Self-Instructional Package on Cooperative Education Coordination Skills.
Harrington, Fred Whitney
To help cooperative education teacher-coordinators bridge the gap between preservice teacher education classes and on-the-job coordination skill requirements, a prototype self-instructional package on cooperative education coordination skills was developed which included video recorded interview models with discrimination training. The package was then tested by using control and esperimental groups of distributive education students. Analysis was facilitated by using the pretest-posttest method, an analysis of covariance, paired groups, the t-test, and a student opinionnaire. The hypothesis that prospective coordinators who use the self-instructional package significantly improve their performance in three skill areas as compared to those prospective coordinators who do not use the package was not accepted. However, it was concluded that those using the package did improve their skills. Recommendations resulting from the study include the need for future research to test the results of using the package over a longer training period. This Ph.D. dissertation was submitted to The Ohio State University. (Author/JS)
