Planning and Conducting Education and Training Programs. A Seven Step Process.
Seltzer, Miriam; Clugston, Richard
Addressed to persons responsible for developing all kinds of training programs, this two-part monograph provides information for replication of a program titled "Training Administrators of Community-based Residential Correctional Facilities," of the training process used in the Community Corrections Training Project. Part 1 describes the seven steps in the training process. These steps involved in developing, conducting, and evaluating a training program are discussed in detail: establishing a general sense of what needs to be done, selecting participants and determining their training needs, writing program goals and objectives, developing the means to realize objectives, designing evaluation, conducting the program, and assessing program effectiveness. Part 2, a documentation of part 1, is a concrete example of how the training process was applied in developing, conducting, and evaluating the Community Corrections Training Project. Some of the problems as well as the accomplishments of this particular program are highlighted. Relevant materials developed in connection with the various steps in the process are provided in the appendixes, including an interview with potential trainees, a list of priorities (training needs), a sample program, representative evaluation forms, and a summary of evaluations of training sessions.
