Technical Assistance in a Collaborative Framework.
Gilmore, Joseph T.
The booklet reviews the products and processes of a BEH (Bureau of Education for the Handicapped) funded project designed to explore the competence based hypothesis and its implications for teacher training, particularly with regard to providing alternative training strategies and models for the certification of teachers in special education. Among conclusions of Section I on technical assistance are that the regulatory and technical assistance functions of a state education agency should be administered through separate offices; that communication is the major technical assistance contribution that a state education agency can make, and that the major item that needs to be communicated is "What decisions are other people making that relate to me?" Section II analyzes survey data in which the educators who participated in the project report on how they feel about it. A third section includes excerpts from the three statewide conferences sponsored by the project and brief descriptions of several modules that were developed. A final section outlines the five instructional modules that were developed, field tested, and evaluated. (SBH)
