Staff Development; Mini Models for College Implementation.
Peterson, Gary T., Ed.
One hundred twenty-seven participants at a June 1975 symposium in Squaw Valley, California, made use of a prescribed problem-solving process in order to originate a number of parts of a total staff development effort for a simulated community college. The developmental stages in the process included brainstorming, needs assessment, resource specification, strategy development, evaluation, and redesign. The instructional strategy involved an interactive setting in which each of several small groups simulated a college committee confronting a sample staff development problem. Twenty-three problem situations are presented in this manual with selected tentative solutions developed by the symposium study groups. Five position papers written by workshop consultants are included, which served as the theoretical and informational background for the symposium. These papers cover: (1) the need for staff development; (2) incentives for participation in staff development programs; (3) instructional development as a major ingredient of staff development; (4) specifying objectives, developing strategies and evaluation; (5) instructional design as a team process. Working forms and guidelines are included, and bibliographies and reference materials are appended. The workshop design is conceived as a prototype for organizing similar workshops on two-year college campuses. (Author/NHM)
