The AMIDS In-Service Training Workshop for Vocational Educators of Disadvantaged and Handicapped Students; How to Plan-Conduct-Evaluate.
Link Enterprises, Inc., Montgomery, AL.
The manual was designed to serve as a reference guide for in-service training of teachers, counselors, administrators, and other personnel who are involved in planning and implementing special vocational education programs for disadvantaged or handicapped students. It is part of a complete teacher training program to be used with supplementary instructional materials and filmstrips. There is a need for in-service training since teaching is not a static profession. In planning a workshop, it is necessary to determine its goals, state its objectives in clearly defined terms, obtain agreement from the participants on the objectives, contact workshop participants to gather personal data, and selected the learning activities. Planners should also select and develop workshop materials, organize the staff, check facilities, and make all necessary arrangements for smooth functioning. Planning may be shared with the instructional staff to benefit from different points of view. A variety of activities (films, "hands-on" laboratories, etc.) will maintain a high level of interest. Participants should be welcomed in some way upon their arrival and provisions made for introducing members of the workshop to each other. A printed program is essential for announcing groupings and optional activities. Evaluation should take place during and after the workshop. (AG)
