Inquiry and Action: Implementation Guide for Program Administrators and Staff Development Facilitators.
Drennon, Cassandra E.
This staff development implementation guide, developed in Virginia, has been created to help program administrators and staff development facilitators answer the question, "What am I supposed to do tomorrow?" For program administrators, it includes procedures, guidelines, and recommendations for successful administration of an inquiry-based staff development program. For staff development facilitators, it provides tools they can use to assist practitioners in developing and carrying out inquiry projects. The brief first section of the guide describes the implementation process for inquiry-based staff development. It includes information on practice and professional development, the "systematic" side of the staff development system, and a model of Virginia's inquiry-based staff development system. Seven appendixes, which make up most of the document, include the following: (1) Virginia requirements for staff development; (2) the performance indicators for staff development; (3) learning plan forms; (4) resources for staff development facilitators; (5) resources for practitioners; (6) funding for staff development activities; and (7) evaluating staff development.
