Workplace Education: Special Topics. Final Report.
Varner, Randy L.
A curriculum of "Special Topics" for workplace education programs was developed. Project staff took into account former participants' suggestions and recommendations for workshop topics and brainstormed ideas for inclusion into the curriculum. Both commercially produced and instructor-made materials on stress management, communication skills, time management, assertiveness, job retention skills, and computer literacy were researched and reviewed. Final workshop contents were assembled and the curriculum was implemented. The computer literacy workshop consisted of six 2-hour sessions at the Adult Education and Job Training Center. Other workshops were 1 1/2 hours long and were presented at the worksite. Total attendance was 155, with approximately 60 different individuals participating. (The 20-page report is followed by appendixes containing the seven-part curriculum. The seven topics are as follows: time management, assertiveness, success on the job, stress management, communication skills, success on the job II--combination of assertiveness and time management resources and curriculum, and computer literacy. Materials provided for each topic include a resource list, seminar or workshop content outline, and information, exercises, and handouts used in the seminar or workshop. Correspondence and enrollment and participant evaluation forms are provided.) (YLB)
