USOE Region III Adult Education Staff Development Project. First Annual Report: July 1972-June 1973.
Maryland Univ., College Park. Conferences and Institutes Div.
The project was conceived to create a permanent regional staff development system for education of adults. Staff needs were determined by each State in the region (District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia) through a survey. The survey also provided information about unique resources and approaches that could be shared effectively throughout the region, avoiding inefficient duplication. The most significant result of the needs survey was the development of an on-going process for identifying ideal staff roles, the functions to be performed in each role, and the specification of the competencies and criteria levels required for acceptable performance. The project has gone through two phases, a portion of which involved an analysis of participants in staff development activities. The third phase is to begin in July 1975, and is perceived in terms of factors which would indicate to planners that a permanent staff development system does exist. The regional office provides services and activities to the project in administration, technical assistance, program and staff development activities, and project evaluation. Regional programs for each State outline State objectives and list State staff. (The 100-page appendix provides guidelines, models, and project-related material.) (AG)
