Summary

The major activities of the Education Resources Center (ERC) thus far have included inservice training, innovative curriculum development, and operation as a professional center for teachers. The inservice training consisted of a variety of workshops, institutes, and seminars on educational technology and individualized instruction which served about 6,448 teachers and administrators between April 1967 and September 1968. Curriculum development involved letting contracts to master teachers during the summer of 1967 and 1968 to write curriculum guides. As a professional center, the ERC had about 1,800 visitors from March 1 to October 31, 1968. Evaluation of the ERC included interviews with and questionnaires directed to personnel at the building level and interviews with administrative and supervisory personnel. (Copies of the questionnaires and an interview outline are included.) The evaluators agreed with the general consensus that the ERC is much needed and should be continued and extended. However, it was felt that the Center was "spreading itself too thin" in attempting to provide training, curriculum development, and services. It was recommended that the role and functions of the Center be more clearly defined. Concern was also expressed about coordination with individual schools and availability of materials. (RT)
