Project ACT (Adult Competency Training): Region VIII Adult Education Staff Development: Second-Year Report: FY '74.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins. Dept. of Education.
The second-year report describes Project ACT (Adult Competency Training) efforts from July 1, 1973 to June 30, 1974 to develop a regional staff development system. Three elements were perceived to be essential: a regional consortium organization to effectively implement ACT programs, State-by-State and region-wide; a multi-dimensional trainer capability; and an extensive array of training units. Six objectives and strategies are discussed and evaluated in terms of their accomplishments: (1) facilitating continued evolvement of the regional consortium organizational framework; (2) further development of State adult staff development plans and integration of these plans within the regional consortium framework; (3) a conference for State agencies, State officials, school officers and adult educators to discuss the development of adult staff development support and to promote community involvement; (4) the extension of "local adult education leadership" Individualized Training Programs (ITP); (5) the development of regional resource teams to provide adult educator training experiences; and (6) the development of training modules. The ACT information system; participant profiles; interview questions and a systematic approach to the development of ITP's; evaluation reports; and reports to the policy board are appended. (JB)
