Effectiveness of an Alternative Delivery System for In-Service Vocational Teacher Education. Final Report.
Richardson, Donald L.; And Others
The project was designed to provide vocational teacher educators in Colorado with an alternative delivery system for inservice vocational teacher education which would overcome barriers of distance (and difficult winter travel), expense, and low student density. A task force composed of staff members of the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education, Departments of Vocational Education of Colorado State University and the University of Northern Colorado, and active teacher-coordinators from all service areas in vocational education jointly formulated a curriculum consisting of goals, objectives, and evaluation criteria for an introductory course in coordinating techniques of cooperative programs. An alternative delivery system for off-campus instruction using videotapes and other audio visual materials, printed modules, and facilitators was developed by the task force. Revisions based on the results of field tests of the first three modules were incorporated into the total package (modules and videotapes) which (according to an evaluation study) can be utilized by field personnel to teach the course with assured quality and content. Field test data are included. Appended material (three-fourths of the document) contains: names of the task force members, the course outline, videotaping schedules and guides, and course evaluation instruments. (Author/MS)
