Hood, Paul D.; Banathy, Bela H.
The mission of the Far West Consortium for DD&E training is to design, develop, implement, and evaluate a comprehensive and transportable training program to meet the demand for trained personnel in educational development, dissemination, and evaluation (DD&E). The program provides both preservice training and continuing education to upgrade those already employed in the field of educational research and development. The content of training has been derived by assessing personnel training needs and conducting task analyses. Training is organized around 8 functional competence areas: (1) planning and design; (2) collection and organization of information and data; (3) communication skills; (4) developmental engineering; (5) evaluation; (6) problem analysis and definition; (7) dissemination and marketing; and (8) management. In addition to the main report, a volume of appendices presenting such items as descriptions of competence areas, resumes of professional personnel, and trainee information and 2 attachments presenting the approach to competence assessment and the program of instruction are also included.
