Workshops in Educational Administration for Administrators/Teachers in PA Programs. An Educational Resource Document.
Westberg, Jane; Jason, Hilliard
This document provides guidelines for persons who intend to supervise, plan, and implement workshops in educational administration for administrators and teachers in physicians assistants (PA) programs. The guidelines are also suitable for workshops for administrators and teachers in other health professions instructional programs, such as medical or nursing schools. Introductory materials provide brief overviews of the need for workshops in educational administration, cautions about such workshops, and overall planning and implementation considerations. The first of two major sections considers steps in planning a workshop: identifying the audience, assessing learning needs, selecting workshop leaders, formulating goals, selecting the workshop strategies and format, selecting instructional resources, and making arrangements for the workshop. The second section focuses on these areas of conducting and evaluating the workshop; creating and refining goals and strategies, fostering collaboration, and evaluating the workshop. Appendixes include materials from workshops, a paper on creative management of PA programs, a bibliography on personnel management, a paper on affirmative action and equal employment opportunities, a paper on financial management, and a bibliography on curriculum design.
