A Study of the Education Professions Development Act Training Programs for Higher Education Personnel, Volume II: Current Training Needs. Final Report.
Anderson, R.; Salter, W.
Volume II of a study of the Education Professions Development Act (EPDA) training program for higher education personnel indicates the first of a three-faceted approach to assess current training needs. The approach, a survey, employed two questionnaires: the Presidential Questionnaire, designed to elicit background data and judgments concerning staffing needs; and the Training Preference Questionnaire, which gathered judgments concerning the perceived need of higher education professionals for various types of training. Following a discussion of the training questionnaire, survey results are organized according to training demand and personnel needs. The results of training demand are divided into three categories: training as a means of filling the needs of American colleges, relative importance of five categories of training, and relative demand for specific training activities. The five training categories are in human relations skills, managerial skills, information management skills, handling current special problems, and further academic studies. Characteristics of the sample of colleges are also presented. The appendix includes the questionnaire forms employed by the study. Related documents are HE 004 329, HE 004 331, and HE 004 332. (MJM)
