Project ACT (Adult Competency Training): Region VIII Adult Education Staff Development: Mid-Year Report: FY '74.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins. Dept. of Education.
The report describes the project's design, initial efforts, and revised objectives toward the development of a regional adult staff development system. Three elements were perceived to be essential to such a system: a regional consortium organization to effectively implement competency-based adult staff development programs, State-by-State and region-wide; a multi-dimensional trainer capability; and an extensive array of training units. Six objectives with related strategies and accomplishments, assessed after one year, were found to be progressing towards the major goal: (1) development of a consortium organizational framework with State and local input; and (2) continued evolvement and integration of State adult staff development plans within the regional consortium framework; (3) increasing involvement by public and private organizations, institutions and agencies in planning and implementing programs; (4) emphasis on "local adult education leadership" in individualized, competency-based training programs; (5) instituting regional resource teams to provide adult education training experiences within respective competency areas; and (6) developing training modules and materials to meet those competencies. The appendixes contain evaluation reports, sample and actual individualized training programs, and staff information. (JB)
