Teaching Research, Apr 1992
This newsletter issue describes the Community Based Inservice Model (CBIM) of the Teaching Research Infant and Child Center (Oregon). This project provides training to personnel who serve secondary age students with moderate to severe disabilities. The project's has been funded by the Federal Government and is based on the philosophy of teaching practices currently recognized as effective. Best educational practices in the areas of community based instruction and vocational training were identified. The CBIM training offers professional training in transition planning, community based activities, and the placement of students in community jobs. It offers either model replication training (in a comprehensive classroom) or component training (in a single component of the model). Project results after 3 years indicated that a total of 186 educators from 13 states received training, that there was substantial improvement on measures of training impact, and a greater percentage of student programs were conducted outside the classroom following the training.
