Linking Schools and Colleges to Develop Continuing Education Programs for School Personnel.
Edson, William H.
Colleges that have prepared students for entry-level school positions are now turning their attention to the development of continuing professional education programs. If educational needs and expectations of employed school personnel are to be satisfied. program development will require a new kind of interaction between schools and colleges. For many colleges, establishing such a relationship will require creation of new communication links. The purposes of these links include (a) identifying educational needs of school personnel, (b) identifying university and school resources available to meet the needs served by educational programs, (c) providing information for administrative decisions, and (d) acquainting research and development staff with real problems in field settings. The purpose of this report is to provide a basis for establishing communication links. It contains a review of selected literature dealing with information dissemination and utilization models, linking systems, linking techniques and strategies, and systems design. It also contains a proposal for a linking system between a college and schools of the state. Finally, it provides a set of guidelines that individuals and program units may follow as they plan to use the linking system. (Author/MJM)
