Adamsky, Richard A.
This module is one in a series of seven focused on skills vocational teachers need to develop and manage programs that are performance-based and fully individualized. Designed to allow for individualization of a teacher education program, these modules supplement those prepared by the National Center for Research in Vocational Education for professional development of vocational teachers. The objective of this module is to help develop skill in functioning in the role of change agent. Focuses are performance-based vocational education, change in education, and the Pennsylvania Diffusion Plan for effecting changes needed to institutionalize performance-based vocational education and the vocational educator's part in the plan. Contents include four learning experiences based on four enabling objectives that provide background information, practice experiences, or a combination. Completion of these experiences should lead to achievement of the terminal objective in the fifth and final learning experience with teacher performance assessment form. Each learning experience includes a learning activity (activities) with information sheets, case studies, and self-checks with model answer (as feedback). Optional activities may also be provided.
