Inservice Education Design Model and Action Steps.
National Inservice Network, Bloomington, IN.
An inservice model for school personnel was designed and used in 181 school systems in Kentucky. The model consists of seven time-specific phases and four generic activities that apply to each of the phases. The time phases are: (1) preliminary planning; (2) needs assessment; (3) goal and objective setting; (4) task, activity, and resource determination; (5) implementation; (6) outcome evaluation; and (7) recycling. Throughout each phase, coordination, legitimation/support, evaluation/reprogramming, and decision recording activities are continuous. Action steps are delineated for each of the phases, breaking the tasks down as quality indicators for evaluation. Recommendations by the National Inservice Network (NIN), a linkage agency that exchanges information about inservice programs for regular educators of mainstreamed children, call for dissemination of the inservice model and action steps and urge its use by state and local educational planners.
