Report to Teacher Corps Personnel on the 10th and 11th Cycle Teacher Corps Developmental Conference (July 18-23, 1976). No. 150.
Goddu, Roland; Ducharme, Edward
This is the final in a series of evaluative documentations on the 1976 Teacher Corps Conference. It is based on an extensive review of the information submitted on pre- and post-conference assessment forms, on individual session forms, on project team forms, and on extensive and numerous written comments. The focus of the critique was to analyze the utility of the conference for project teams in learning about (a) Teacher Corps, (b) expectations about roles, (c) improved or additional content for projects, (d) products that could be used only by the project, and (e) procedures that should be used by individuals and projects. Ten recommendations summarize the findings: (1) The National Conference should last no more than four days; (2) Specific learning and consolidation activities must be provided for all; (3) Projects and individuals should be told that they are expected to arrange their own time to allow for planning, thinking, talking, and reflecting; (4) The National Conference should provide sessions to assist projects in designing follow-up activities that are beyond typical discussion and meeting modes; (5) The parity of the Community in project planning, implementation, curriculum development, evaluation, and documentation needs to be made more visable, even at the risk of decrease in professional content; (6) The Conference should continue to invite controversial and trend-setting presentors; (7) The purposes and design of the conference should be reiterated often; (8) The conference should continue its extensive documentation and evaluation processes; (9) Presentors should be aware of the intent of the conferences; and (10 the conference should exist.
