Managing Learning Time: A Professional Development Guide. Leadership Training Series No. 69.
Halasz, Ida M.; Raftery, Susan R.
This professional development guide is designed for vocational education practitioners to use with a separately available handbook on time-use analysis and an optional videotape on conducting workshops on time-use analysis. Examined first is the importance of analyzing time on task. After a discussion of the importance of planning, a six-point plan for designing a workshop is set forth. The remainder of the guide consists of outlines for workshop presentations on the following topics: understanding the importance of time on task, discussing workshop objectives, citing general education research, discovering time use in vocational and technical classes, planning time-use analyses, conducting observations, computing time use, displaying and interpreting results, enhancing time use, and summarizing and evaluating the workshop. Each presentation outline contains notes to the instructor, a list of overhead transparencies to be used in the presentation, and a presentation script. Appendixes to the guide contain reviews of the publications "A Nation at Risk: The Imperative for Education Reform" and "A Place Called School" as well as a log of the optional videotape on time-use analysis. Concluding the guide are 42 overhead transparency masters and 13 handout duplication masters. (MN)
