Teacher Corps Networking: Purpose and Potential. A Position Paper.
McNett, Ian, Ed.; And Others
This booklet describes the networking function of the Far West Teacher Corps Network, one of 12 networks set up in 1974 to share information on Teacher Corps projects and practices. In the first section, Teacher Corps networks are defined. Section 2 outlines the background and growth of the Far West Network in terms of its goals and accomplishments. Section 3 discusses the management role of the executive secretary in the network, and Section 4 deals with Teacher Corps networking experiences, with conclusions for effective participation. Design of future Teacher Corps networks is considered in Section 5, based on responses by Far West Network project directors and deans, Teacher Corps experiences, and reports on other networks. A developmental model is suggested, consisting of identifying local needs, implementing a network delivery system, and publishing documents and reports. (FG)
