Building and Using Staff Development Resources for Adult Education: A Five-Year Report: 1969-74.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
The purpose of the original three-year project was to establish a comprehensive regional plan for professional staff development for teachers of disadvantaged adults in the Southeast, but the focus shifted during the following two year phase toward using these resources for disseminating the latest and best information and materials. A project dateline outlines the major activities and dates. The report outlines the roles of various State, Federal, and local institutions; the barriers the project faced; and the motivations of people and groups responsible for creating the first regional staff development project in adult basic education (ABE). The two phases of the project are discussed in terms of the six formulated objectives and outcomes. Phase 1 developed State and regionwide staff development systems and Phase 2 utilized these staff development systems as vehicles for disseminating innovative ideas and materials to ABE teachers at the local level. Major outcomes were: stronger leadership in State departments of education, university and college services for staff development in adult education, trainers for inservice personnel, planning committees, establishing written plans for each project, and obtaining technical expertise for the projects. Recommendations focus on the strengthening of services and programs. (JB)
