Iowa Univ., Iowa City. Coll. of Education.
This final report describes a project to revise a 60-hour postsecondary course for activity coordinators in long-term care facilities in Iowa, to train instructors to teach the curriculum, and to evaluate that training. Introductory material includes the following: a summary sheet on how course competencies were identified, how the materials were revised, for whom the materials are intended, evaluation findings concerning their use, the impact of the materials, and recommendations for the future; and a sample teacher training program for activity coordinators evaluation form. Next come the objectives, agenda, and evaluation of an instructor training workshop. The rest of the document consists of the course training materials. A course summary sheet includes a course description, description of competency development, list of instructional methods used in the course, and evaluation description. The competencies taught in the course are listed. A matrix lists the objectives, content, and instructional methods and/or activities used to teach each of four units of instruction: (1) an orientation to the course and the duties of an activity coordinator; (2) management skills; (3) the characteristics of residents in long-term care facilities; and (4) a program of activities that could be carried out by a coordinator. The materials conclude with sheets that tell the instructor the objectives for every instructional activity prescribed on the matrix and directions for carrying them out. (CML)
