Developing and Evaluating a Performance-Oriented Training Program for Community-Based Faculty of a School of Social Work.
Krop, Lois P.
This study designed and implemented a program for training agency-based field instructors in a performance-oriented strategy of teaching. A training program was developed for agency teachers that introduced an adaptation of the systems approach to field instruction. At the conclusion of the seminar the learners will have: (1) participated in developing an instructional unit that incorporates the components of the systems approach to instruction, and which is considered acceptable by the workshop leader as an adequate instructional unit in the beginning stages of development; and (2) expressed a favorable disposition toward the systems approach to instruction as being applicable to their own teaching. An evaluation of the training program showed that the objectives were achieved by all participants--that is, the clinical faculty of the Barry College School of Social Work. The overwhelming majority of field instructors who participated in the training program expressed the belief that the performance-oriented systems approach to field work instruction was a viable strategy for enhancing social work agency teaching and obviating several programs that have been indentified as currently existing in field instruction.
