Generalized InService Training (GIST) Project. Final Report, Year 3.
Billingsley, Felix F.; Haring, Norris G.
This final report describes activities of the 3-year Generalized InService Training (GIST) Project to develop and field test an inservice training model for educators serving children with moderate, severe, and profound handicaps. Critical elements of the approach are identified, including: (1) training of educators and supervisors to work together to implement new strategies; (2) activities designed specifically to promote participants' adoption and application of training topics in actual instructional programs; and (3) the use of each educator's own classroom or facilities as the inservice practicum site. Field testing with a total of 61 persons was conducted at a pilot site and two replication sites. The content employed to test the inservice model was promoting skill generalization. A series of trainer's kits were developed which provide training designs and associated materials. Most of the document consists of the following attachments: the GIST manual; the CLP (Collaborative Learning Process) Participant Guide; exit interview data; a paper on the collaborative learning process by Barbara Matlock and others; and the GIST Product Catalog.
