An Overview of a Planning Process for an Inservice Education Program. An Informational Booklet.
Western Washington Univ., Bellingham.
This booklet is part of a set of materials based on the belief that by getting teachers to agree on fundamental issues and values, a comprehensive program of inservice can be easily planned. This component of the set presents six generalizations about effective inservice programs and illustrates each with several different, but satisfactory, possibilities. These generalizations are: (1) teachers are more likely to benefit from programs in which they can choose goals and activities, as contrasted with programs in which they are preplanned; (2) school-based training programs have more influence than college-based programs; (3) program objectives should be specific; (4) programs that have different training experiences are more likely to accomplish their objectives than programs having common activities required of all participants; (5) teacher's personal goals/needs and those of the school should be congruent if training is to improve school system operations significantly; and (6) training (related to job assignments) is likely to be effective if adequate time is provided within the current work schedule for each activity.
