The Planning of In-Service Workshops: A Seminar (Atlanta, Feb. 14-17, 1971).
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
This document is a summation of a workshop designed to be a planning experience for ABE training personnel. It also contains a sampling of model training designs developed by the participants for inservice work. The object of the seminar was to provide an overview of relevant techniques and procedures for developing and implementing short-term workshops and two-week institutes. During the three days of the seminar, participants would be actively involved in all phases of a workshop, and extract generalizations which could be used in their own situations. As a means of demonstrating climate setting, each of the six participants was asked to prepare a profile describing their individual members. At the conclusion of this exercise, the seminar director asked the seminar participants to describe the type of climate established. After the design for training was outlined, each of the six working groups was asked to identify problem areas which they wished to consider further. Twelve problem areas were defined by the group. These include: (1) Institutional constraints against planning in advance, (2) How to bring the student to a recognition of his needs without losing him in the process, and (3) How to establish competencies of adult teachers. After the diagnosis of problems, each group was asked to design a model institute. The following format was used by all groups: a description of the general situation where the workshop would take place, including sponsor and financial arrangements. (Author/CK)
