Improvement of Occupational Education in the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Phase II: Regional Workshops.
Cronin, F. Patrick; And Others
Phase II activities of a project to improve occupational education programs in corrective institutions involved conducting five workshops for 106 selected participants with responsibility for the delivery of occupational education in the Bureau of Prisons (BOP). Specific objectives were to provide a forum of discussion of phase I findings involving the comparative effectiveness of various delivery programs, and to provide staff development training. The report describes the development of the workshop curriculum, selection of participants, and the workshop evaluation procedures. Results are presented as mean ratings of final evaluation items for each workshop site and across sites to show regional and total impact. Overall results indicated that workshop objectives and expectations were met and that participants viewed the proceedings very favorably. Appendixes consist of workshop agenda, participant lists, BOP vocational education course listings, evaluation forms, and daily evaluation results. (NJ)
