Miller-Beach, Audni; And Others
Designed to provide pre- and inservice vocational education administrators with the skills necessary to establish and/or facilitate implementation of a staff development program, 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 administrator role in staff development, staff development in the community college, and procedures for developing a staff development program (needs assessment, training needs, establishing needs and plans, staff involvement, adult learning and adult education skills, selecting strategies and techniques, selecting trainers, staff development activities, program promotion, program evaluation, financial resources, facilities, and incentives). Critiquing the performances and views of administrators in given case studies is the subject of the second learning experience. The final learning experience entails providing a staff development program in an actual administrative setting. (Related competency-based vocational education administrator modules covering curriculum development, program evaluation, improving instruction, program promotion, and student recruitment and admissions are available separately through ERIC--see note.)
