A Descriptive Study of Selected Workshop Factors Affecting the Training and Support of Resource Personnel in a Science Curriculum.
May, David Henry
Reported is a descriptive study of selected workshop factors affecting the training and support of resource personnel in a science curriculum. Forty participants attended the workshop, the majority of whom were college instructors while other participants were science supervisors and consultants. Twenty-eight of the participants were members of two-man teams and twelve attended as individuals. Study instrumentation consisted of a standardized test of science knowledge, an instrument constructed to measure perception of the educational worth of the curriculum used, a workshop evaluation, and an activity log that was returned monthly. The results indicate that, contrary to expectations, teams of participants were not significantly more active than were individuals; however, the extent the team members had worked together previously appeared to strongly influence the activity of the teams. Among all participants, science supervisors proved to be the most active, and science consultants the least active. The amount of increase in score on the perception instrument was found to be significantly correlated with later activity levels. (Author/BR)
