Applying Organizational Development Techniques to In-Service Education.
Naumann-Etienne, Maren; Todd, J. Williams
An attempt to develop a long-range, comprehensive approach to inservice education in a midwestern school system is described. A five-step sequence of activities was followed: (1) relationshiP building with administrators, a representative teacher group, and students; (2) diagnosis of system needs through site visitations; (3) survey of teacher concerns relative to areas identified during the site visits; (4) survey of program priorities of teachers; and (5) feedback of results for final program planning. It is suggested that organizational development techniques, in combination with inservice program planning, will establish greater willingness among system members to follow through on program recommendations, thus generating more opportunities for system self-renewal than conventional "shot-in-the-arm" approaches. As descriptions of data feedback with school staffs are lacking in the literature, the case presents a detailed account of a data-based meeting with administrators and a representative group.
