Day Care Administrator Training Project: Final Report.
Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Univ. Extension.
The first 16 pages of the report describe the development of the day care administrator training project. They describe: the identification of 32 areas of administrative skill which the curriculum focuses on; the organization of the curriculum along Gagne's model through a task analysis of the terminal, enabling, and teaching objectives; and the development of instructional materials on the basis of cognitive organizers, that is, comprehensive, systematic statements of major learning constructs. The remainder of the report consists of appendixes: brief sample project visitation reports and a summary of results of a letter survey; a lengthy curriculum document, which for each of the 32 skill areas lists tasks, conceptual skills and knowledge, and possible training sources; a curriculum task analysis, which for 10 basic administrator skills specifies educational purposes, learning experiences, continuity and sequence and integration of skills, evaluation of learning experiences, and program evaluation; and teaching-learning transactions for the interpretive function, which contain a curriculum task analysis, a cognitive organizer, and teaching-learning transactions.
