Training-in-Common for Educational, Public, and Business Administrators. ERIC/CEM-UCEA Series on Administrator Preparation. ERIC/CEM State-of-the-Knowledge Series, Number Seventeen. UCEA Monograph Series, Number Four.
In this monograph, the author assesses the progress that has been made toward the development of in-common programs for preparing administrators to serve in a variety of institutional settings. After outlining the assumptions, rationales, and strategies behind attempts to institute interdisciplinary administrator training programs, the author describes in detail several Canadian and American programs that provide such training. Although some of the programs described consist only of shared classes and seminars, others entail a completely integrated program of experiences. The author describes several sources of resistance to the adoption of training-in-common and shows how these resistive forces must be overcome if the implementation of in-common training programs is to be accelerated. An extensive bibliography is included. (Author/DN)
