A Career Development Center: A Model for School Employee Development.
Foster, Donald M.; Foster, Rick
The approach of the present project is to consider educational planning as an integrated process in which the facility becomes an integral part of the evolving education program and the teaching-learning situation. The products or output of the project, therefore, are directed toward the total process of educational planning and the procedures and methodologies which comprise it. In this paper, the authors present the point of view that in the future, the nonteaching personnel in the public schools should be encouraged to participate in learning activities using resources already available within the school plant. The participation of such personnel is seen as part of a program of career development involving lifelong learning, job upgrading, and career mobility. The authors also present a Career Development Model and describe a Career Development System which can, it is believed, provide more satisfied and productive workers (though perhaps fewer in number) and assure greater utilization of school facilities. Implications for facility planning are explored, with emphasis on a specific element of the Career Development Model: the Career Development Learning Center. (Author)
