Inservice Training Design Simulation.
Massachusetts Univ., Amherst. School of Education.
This exercise simulates the process of planning for inservice training. It compresses what would typically involve many weeks and interaction with large numbers of people into a 10-hour exercise. The simulation requires that a planning group of 10 members formulates a plan for the 65 staff members of an elementary school, given the constraints of an inservice training budget, a school calendar, and a limited amount of consultant help. Recommendations are to be developed for an inservice training program for the 1970-71 school year that will prepare the school staff to implement differentiated staffing in 1971-72. The information from which the team will work is contained in a memo from the "District Advisory Group" and includes a statement of the planning group's task, a set of criteria to consider in planning an inservice training program, a task breakdown for the elementary school's future operations, a description of four staff roles which will be included in the plans, the elementary school calendar for 1970-71, and inservice training budget, and a summary report on the school personnel. The four phases of the exercise are planning, evaluation and analysis, plan modification, and reports and analysis. (SP 004 892, 894 and 895 are related documents.) (MBM)
