Quest for Quality. A Model for Inservice Education.
An inservice program designed to use the resources of the local school district, the area education agency, the regional graduate study center, and the college of education is described. A unique strength of the program is identified as providing opportunities for sharing between preservice and inservice teachers, between teachers and administrators from different school districts, and between national and local educators, primary through college levels, with similar interests and concerns. Both undergraduate and graduate credits can be earned by participation in the program. This report includes a list of participating personnel from each educational area, a sample budget, and a brief evaluation of the program. Recommendations are made for the successful implementation of a similar program. A comprehensive needs assessment by teachers and administrators is considered essential. Full participation on the part of cooperating agencies in every phase of the project is of prime importance. It is desirable to maintain a flexible schedule with a wide variety of topic choices. The option of academic credit is appreciated and seems to result in higher quality work. Appended aare workshop program descriptions and a workshop evaluation scale. (JD)
