Thirteen Alternative Learning Environments That Can Be Used to Evaluate the Impact of Teacher Inservice Workshops on Documented Learner Benefits.
Alvir, Howard P.
This catalog, intended for inservice program directors, describes a large number of activities for evaluating the impact of teacher inservice workshops on learner gains. The first description explains how to provide an activity-by-activity evaluation measure that identifies objectives, time period, resources, personnel, and success of outcome. The second describes how to identify positive and negative factors through an overview of the program. The third advises project directors to become aware of current literature on management and leadership by objectives. The fourth examines the problem of motivating all participants in an inservice program to strive toward new professional competency. The fifth considers the importance of being able to count visible and measurable success. The sixth looks at what can be done to prepare for local implementation difficulties. The seventh discusses followup evaluation instruments. The eighth describes how to develop an instrument to determine the competence level of participants at the beginning of the workshop in relation to the workshop's objectives. The ninth discusses participants' comments on and responses to the workshop. The tenth explains that the objectives proposed for the workshop should be realistic. The eleventh stresses the importance of considering what the participants want; and the last description emphasizes the fact that this catalog is not a blueprint telling the director exactly what to do, but a list of alternatives.
