Staff Development. Vocational Education Curriculum Specialist, Module 16.
One of five modules in the administrative series of the 16-module series designed to train vocational education curriculum specialists, this module is intended for use in classes or individual study arrangements at the preservice or inservice level by students with varying amounts of experience in vocational education. (These modules are revised versions of earlier study guides--see note.) Introductory materials include an overview, instructions to the learner, detailed list of behavioral goals and objectives, and resources needed to complete learning activities. The module is divided into four sections, each based on one of the goals. The first section concerns determining needed skills and attitudes. Discussed are involvement of teachers, supervisors and administrators, and the community; and staff development goals. The second section is about exploring available staff development information and includes sources, presentation of information, and selecting appropriate staff development strategies. The third section is on preparing for staff development, while section four considers evaluation of staff development activities. Each section follows a standard format: text, individual study activities, discussion questions, and group activities. A summary of the module follows. Appendixes include a self-check, responses to the self-check, and recommended references. (YLB)
