Client-Centered Approach to Inservice Needs Assessment.
James, Barry N.
Steps taken by a university to develop a successful and meaningful inservice teacher education program for public school teachers are described. Development of this program involves cooperative effort from several different sources. Faculty members, as part of their teaching load, are assigned to educational support teams that help school districts identify needs and acquire resources. Faculty members also work with professional development centers in intermediate school districts. In addition, field-based, needs-based, inservice-oriented, master degree programs are developed cooperatively with participating teachers, university instructors, and school district personnel. The major emphasis in this program planning is on active participation at all stages of planning on the part of the school teachers who will benefit from the inservice courses designed for the program.
