Source Book of Training Products in Instructional Planning and Management. Far West Laboratory Series in Instructional Planning.
McCutchan, Nancy; And Others
This sourcebook was developed to provide school personnel with efficient and effective access to information on available training products. It should be viewed as a resource to increase awareness and understanding of new products--products that train personnel in setting program goals, planning for development, and performing evaluation. There are three main sections. The first section, Orientation, presents a view of instructional planning and management held by the Far West Laboratory. This section also includes the criteria by which the programs and resources described were selected. The second section, Program Reports, describes 15 program packages that can be implemented within a school district to meet specific needs for staff development or training. A chart organizes key information about all 15 programs so that each can be reviewed and compared quickly and easily. Each report should provide the decision-maker with enough information to decide whether to preview the program. The third section, Training Resources, presents an annotated list of 27 supplementary materials. These resources are mostly reference books, handbooks, textbooks, monographs, and case studies that are organized topically under five major areas. (Author/IRT)
