Improve Instructional Capabilities of Part-Time Vocational Education Call-Staff. Final Report.
Wisconsin Univ. - Stout, Menomonie. Center for Vocational, Technical and Adult Education.
The purpose of the project was to plan and conduct workshops designed to upgrade the basic teaching skills of part-time vocational teachers in the Wisconsin Vocational-Technical Adult Education System. The project consisted of designating the pedagogical skills to be learned, developing an instructional booklet to be correlated with the workshop agenda, conducting four separate one-day workshops, and evaluating the impact of the workshops and materials on the teaching skills of the participants. Although the immediate response was enthusiastic, the follow up survey two months later indicated that teachers may need more time to develop basic teaching skills. The report summarizes the project, outlines the procedures utilized in developing the workshops, and presents the evaluation results. The 20-page "Improving Instructional Skills" booklet used for the teacher training workshops is appended, along with a teacher evaluation checklist, additional project-developed lesson plans, an inservice workshop procedural outline for call-staff, and project correspondence.
