This document, one of more than 100 performance-based vocational teacher education modules, covers the following objectives as it prepares pre- and inservice teachers to keep up to date professionally: (1) after completing the required reading, demonstrate knowledge of the concepts involved in, and evaluate your current status in terms of, keeping up-to-date in your profession and in your occupational specialty; and (2) after identifying available resources, use these resources to help you keep up-to-date in your profession and in your occupational speciality. After an introduction, the document contains an explanatory section on the organization of the module, required and optional learning activities, information sheets, student self-check evaluation forms that cover learning activities, model answers for the forms, and a form on which the teacher's performance on the module's terminal objective ("While working in an actual teaching situation, keep up-to-date professionally.") is to be assessed. The information sheet covers membership in professional organizations, reading journals and other publications, attending conferences and conventions, attending lectures and presentations, working with other professionals, further education, and the media.
