EDUCATIONAL
PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT

While Dr. Pasewark has been involved in the development of many successful educational programs, there is a desperate need for the single most important improvement in education: The longitudinal, systematic Evaluation of Classroom Teaching. He has been fortunate to have on-site experiences that led to the authorship of the article: "Evaluation of Teacher Chart: Easy as 1, 2, 3 (4)." The extensive experiences identified here contributed to the development of the Teacher Evaluation Chart.

Dr. Pasewark taught a "Model Lesson" about Effective Communication in the Student Teaching Seminars where students were preparing to do student teaching. Students completed the Teacher Evaluation Check List rating their professor's lesson. After the lesson, students and Pasewark discussed the strengths of the lesson and how to overcome the weaknesses.

Classroom teaching effectiveness would soar if every professor/teacher could personally demonstrate lessons they teach.

Educational Program Development
  • Initiated the City of Lubbock–Texas Tech Intern Program: A Joint Venture in Education. Senior business and public administration students interned at City Hall and attended lectures at Texas Tech.
  • Initiated and conducted a four-week Office Education Institute for 40 business teachers from the United States pursuant to a grant from the U.S. Office of Education.
  • Developed an in-service course for office education teachers. Traveled weekly to San Antonio and the Rio Grande Valley funded by a grant from the Texas Education Agency. Consulted on-site with teachers and principals to understand problems concerning curriculum, teaching methods, facilities, and equipment. Developed solutions to problems on site and through class discussion with other teachers in the course.
  • Developed a program to help business teachers in a graduate course, Learning About American Business, to realistically understand business. Students were special guests at a Lubbock Lions Club luncheon. Students then accompanied Lions to their businesses to observe pre-selected operations and discuss the business with management and workers.
  • Dr. Pasewark was "shadowed" for several days by a student in his Office Administration course as he was administrating the offices of the College of Business Department Head. The student recorded the "favorable" and "unfavorable" execution of his tasks and applied organization and time management principles for his improvement.
  • Planned and conducted 47 half-hour programs of Beginning Typewriting through television on WKAR-TV, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan.
  • Planned and directed the first two-day Electronic Computer Seminar for 150 Texas Tech faculty, 1957.
  • Developed and taught the course Collegiate Education for Business. The course was offered to accounting, marketing, and management doctoral students to develop their personal philosophies of education and to improve their classroom teaching abilities. Students formed a group to co-author a book based on their class experiences.>
  • >Assisted in planning a five-month pre-service Office Education Program for Disadvantaged Female Adults. Seventeen African-American and Hispanic women who were previously unqualified for office employment were educated for jobs. He also taught some of these courses.
  • Taught a course that emphasizes private enterprise to business personnel and business teachers. For his term project, one of the students developed a speech about the free enterprise system and became a professional speaker.
  • Developed and taught the first course at Texas Tech University on Teaching Microcomputers and Word Processors. Two of the graduate students commuted 360 miles, round-trip, on Saturdays to take the course. Students rated the course 3.7 of a possible 4.0.
  • Directed a graduate class, Foundations of Business Education, that developed an Action Plan Proposal to require every Texas high school student take one year of basic business courses.
