Final RCA Staff Development Consulting Report for the D.C. Career Development Center--Phase II.
Radio Corp. of America, Dallas, TX. Education Services.
The report summarizes the activities of a two-week workshop designed to teach the basic technique of developing competency-based curriculum materials. Participants were the staff of a proposed career development center for high school and postsecondary students. The workshops were conducted in February and March of 1974 and were Phase Two of a staff development program. Emphasized were the techniques for deriving learning competencies using behavioral analysis and the development of learning modules developed around measurable performance objectives. Individualism within the group setting was encouraged by allowing staff to focus on their areas of expertise within the two pilot career clusters: communications and media, and fine arts and humanities. Evaluation of the workshop was conducted by a participant self-assessment survey. Appendixes to the report (149 pages) contain the workshop schedule, materials prepared for participants, and results of the evaluation summary. The materials consist of handouts, information packets, exercises to be completed, guidelines for writing curriculum materials, and examples of four learning packages. Handouts upon which exercises were based include: the philosophy, goals, and program outlines of the center; behavioral analysis leading to competency statements; pre-assessment for writing performance objectives; and pre-assessment for validating performance objectives.
