Shared Decision-Making. A Training Module. School Personnel Utilization.
Cryer, Rodger E.; And Others
The School Personnel Utilization Project developed a series of modules to assist school personnel in building the necessary skills for the development of organizational change strategies and collaborative, collegial, educational problem solving capabilities. This specific module is on the concept of shared decision-making and its application to school administration. The manual is divided into 12 sections. Included are: (1) discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of shared decision-making in various contexts; (2) a conceptual base and supporting training exercises on different decision-making models; (3) some aspects of problem solving and decision-making through a structured group exercise; and (4) materials focusing on communication systems and the concepts of accountability and responsibility. A bibliography and a list of practitioners' questions concerning shared decision-making are also included. (Author/DGC)
