Career Counseling Task Forces: A Staff Development Project to Create Educator Teams for High Schools and Community Colleges in California.
Healy, Charles C.; Sorenson, A. Garth
This report describes five workshops conducted throughout California to enable educators from high schools and community colleges to coalesce into career guidance task forces for their schools and to learn about current career guidance concepts and practices. Activities and personnel who supported the project are presented according to their functional role. Project objectives are enumerated and achievements resulting from the project are assessed in terms of team development, technical learning and satisfaction, attendance, and personal growth. In the Technical Learning and Satisfaction section of this report, the workshop activities are detailed in a day-by-day summary. Participant evaluations of each workshop and its modules are presented by overall workshop ratings and by individual module ratings, as well as the authors' impressions about the evaluations. Project experiences are delineated and recommendations for improving staff development are suggested, including: (1) allowing sufficient time to create and refine a staff development program; (2) providing a flexible array of integrated staff development services; and (3) assuring that participating teams accept mutual responsibility for progress with the program originators.
