Conceptual Base of Program I: Specialist in Continuing Education (SCE). Consultants' Assessment.

This report describes an investigation of theory and research relevant to the development of program I: Specialist in Continuing Education (SCE), a program to train teacher educators who will work with inservice teachers in small groups to improve their professional skills. The major portion of the report consists of position papers written by six consultants on different aspects of the program. Titles are 1) "Instructional Objectives in the Changing of Professional Behavior," 2) "Feedback Theory as It Relates to Changing Teacher Behavior," 3) "Self Confrontation of Teachers," 4) "Change Agent Strategies in Perspective," 5) "An Analysis of Group Support and Helping Structures," 6) "Reward Structures." These papers were used in a consultants' conference which employed a modified Delphi process to identify the program's major weaknesses or difficulties and its potential strengths. A recurrent theme in the papers and the conference was the institutionalization of the role of the SCE in an educational organization. The final section of the report explores issues related to the development, implementation, and institutionalization of the new role. (SP 004 952 describes the SCE training program.) (RT)
