The California Staff Development Study: Instruments and Guidelines for Implementation in Schools.
Joyce, Bruce; And Others
This report presents concepts, procedures, and instruments to be used in studying staff development in educational settings. The report has been structured as a set of guidelines designed to help state agencies, county offices, teacher centers, universities, school districts, and local school faculties collaborate in investigating the dynamics of the staff development activities presently participated in by education personnel. The information thus collected can be used to design more favorable conditions under which educators can increase their skills and invigorate their professional lives. The report's main purpose is to achieve an active practical program for the improvement of staff development in the schools. The report provides an overview of the program, outlines the design of inquiries into the ecology of staff development, explains the interviewing process, discusses the questionnaires used, shows how to use the interview and questionnaire data to create profiles of individuals and of schools, discusses the use of feedback, and summarizes the projected full-scale operation of the plan and outlines the first workshop for a training task force.
