Report of Teacher Utilization of Ideas and Materials Related to the Global Education Workshops Conducted during September, 1980. Phase I.
DuVall, Charles R.
This report describes and evaluates the Indiana Global Education Program which developed teacher in-service training sessions, dissemination networks, materials, and resource centers to strengthen global education in Indiana Schools. The emphasis in this report is on how elementary and secondary Indiana teachers used the ideas and materials which they learned about in workshops sponsored by the Indiana Global Education Program in 1980. Questionnaires concerning the effectiveness of the workshops were sent to 389 teachers. The response rate was 46%. Findings include the following: Ideas and materials from the workshops were used primarily to supplement the regular instructional program. Over two thirds of the teachers viewed the ideas and materials as helpful or very helpful. The instructional effectiveness of the workshops was viewed as effective or very effective by approximately two thirds of the respondents. Overall, the ideas and materials proved to be most positively accepted by those teachers in the junior high/middle school range. The least acceptance was found on the part of primary teachers. Part two of the study, yet to be conducted, will involve in-depth, follow-up interviews of selected respondents. The appendices contain the cover letter to participants, a copy of the questionnaire, and responses to open ended questionnaire items. (Author/RM)
