Alternative Strategies for the Delivery of Inservice.
Bents, Richard H.; Howey, Kenneth R.
The means by which different delivery strategies can be matched with or made to accommodate to different inservice goals are discussed. A framework for assessing when one delivery strategy is more appropriate than another is provided. The framework for planning inservice delivery outlines distinct but complementary strategies that focus upon three basic and related goals. The first of these goals is to enhance adult cognitive, intrapersonal, and interpersonal development as it impinges upon teaching effectiveness. The second is to alter environmental (school) conditions that impinge upon teaching effectiveness. The final goal is to improve teaching effectiveness directly, especially by altering teacher instructional behavior in situ. Teachers in this program engage in different forms of inservice to achieve these different goals and select their goals on the basis of their personal assessment of needs. Alternative strategies for the delivery of inservice education are considered necessary to achieve a comprehensive program. (JD)
