Designing a Study of Available Resources. B-3 Evaluating the Utilization of Learning Resources, Document No. 10c, Revised. Independent Study Training Material for Professional Supervisory Competencies.
Herring, Billie Grace
This self-instructional learning packet is one part of a competency-guided program for instructional supervisor preparation developed by the Special Education Supervisor Training (SEST) project. Teaching the supervisor to determine the appropriateness of learning resources, including instructional and resource materials, is the goal of this training packet. The user of this packet is to collect information on what materials are available, who uses them (and how effectively), and what materials are not being utilized. This information is to be correlated with a materials evaluation measure. The supervisor observes teachers and students using the materials and interviews them to gain a more complete picture of the materials' effectiveness. He should also find out from them what assistance they need to improve their utilization of learning resources. These resources include not only textbooks and other district-provided materials, but also those from area learning resource centers and instructional radio and television. These resources may not be fully utilized for many reasons, including unavailability of necessary equipment, inflexible work space, and lack of duplicate copies. In some of these cases, the supervisor may be able to correct the situation. (DS)
