Workplace Education Mini Course Pilot Project. Final Report.
Nash, Andy; Uvin, Johan
A minicourse pilot project was designed by the Massachusetts Department of Education to meet the staff training and development needs of workplace educators in the National Workplace Literacy Program. During the course, various activities and group configurations were used to help teachers apply modeled approaches to their own teaching contexts, and hands-on activities gave participants opportunities to experience the various roles they will play as workplace educators. The workshop was presented in six sessions, most lasting about 3 hours. Topics covered included the following: (1) laying the groundwork; (2) program design; (3) curriculum development; (4) assessment and evaluation; (5) materials development; and (6) wrap-up and next steps. Teachers involved in the pilot project appreciated the course as a forum for sharing issues, concerns, and advice. Many participants suggested having more time for a subsequent course. (The report includes worksheets used in the minicourse and a glossary of 91 terms used in workplace education.) (KC)
