Quinn, Karen M.; And Others
Designed to provide pre- and inservice vocational education administrators with the skills necessary to guide the development and improvement of instruction, this competency-based learning module consists of an introduction and three sequential learning experiences. Each learning experience contains an overview, required and optional learning activities, a self-check section, and a series of model answers for use with the self-check section. Topics covered in the first learning experience include the scope of the administrator's responsibility in developing and improving instruction, facilitating the conventional approach to instruction, assessing instruction, and facilitating the competency-based approach to instruction. Evaluating the performance of an administrator in a given case study in guiding staff in selecting and using a new instructional strategy and creating a climate for improving instruction are discussed. The final learning experience involves guiding the development and improvement of instruction in an actual administrative situation. (Related competency-based vocational education administrator modules covering program evaluation, curriculum development, program promotion, staff development, and student recruitment and admissions are available separately through ERIC--see note.)
