Design, Development and Validation of a Transportable Instructional System for the Training of Educational Diffusion/Evaluation Personnel. Final Report.
Banathy, Bela H.; And Others
The planning, design, development and field testing of an instructional system for the training of educational disseminators/evaluators who are named "Educational Information Consultants" is reported. A modular training program is described covering the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to perform effectively in disseminating education information in various settings. Training materials and course sequences are focused on five processes: negotiation of a client's problem, retrieval of Research and Development information, transformation of retrieved information, communication of the above processes, and assessment of effectiveness. Course and performance objectives are presented. This thirty-class-hours training system has been developed and field tested as a self-contained, performance-oriented course containing lesson plans, exercises, readings, media, tests and instructor inputs. Three field tests of the course are described. Results of pretest-posttest comparisons for each of the above processes as well as for the overall course indicate the effectiveness of this training program in educational settings and information centers in preparing educational dissemination personnel.
