Training for Leadership in Local Educational Improvement Programs. Unit 3. Task Flow for Designing and Conducting Local Educational Improvement Programs.
Heathers, Glen; Brown, Mary V.
The purpose of this unit is to give an introduction to the phases of a change program rather than to give a specific training for leadership in conducting each phase. The task flow is presented as an application of a general problem-solving model. A person who completes this program should be able to define the problem-solving process, list its essential components, and illustrate each with examples drawn from everyday life; list the phases in a task flow for planning and conducting a local educational improvement program; list steps in conducting a needs analysis as a basis for deciding on a change program; specify requirements to be met in a search for national and local resources that could meet needs that have been identified; specify general requirements for selecting a change program that promises to meet needs that have been identified; outline requirements to be met in designing a change program; specify kinds of preparations needed for installing a change program; specify requirements for analyzing and assessing the implementation of a change program; specify requirements for assessing the outcomes of a change program; and specify bases for deciding whether to abandon, change, continue, or expand a change program.
