College Library Services To Support Competency-Based Training: New Roles, Skills and Partnerships. Workshop Report.
Burnheim, Robert; Floyd, Anne
This report documents the findings from 13 workshops designed to help teachers and librarians work together to identify library services required to support the delivery of competency-training curricula. Two hundred and twenty-eight staff attended the workshops, which were held in Queensland (Australia) between March and July 1992. About 80 percent of the participants were teachers; the remainder were librarians. The report is based on teacher and librarian responses to the following workshop topics: (1) defining competency-based training; (2) the impact of competency-based training curricula on the teaching process; (3) what kinds of library services are needed to support the delivery of a competency-based training curriculum; (4) what library services that existed before the switch to a competency-based curriculum were beneficial to the new curriculum; (5) blocks to the provision of library services in support of the new curriculum; and (6) interventions and activities needed at the college, regional and state levels to improve services. The raw data collected during the workshops, a curriculum development model showing library input, a list of the workshops, the evaluation forms and summary of the evaluation, and a copy of the workshop booklet are appended.
