- Team-Teach is a school-wide holistic approach developed overseas and now available in Hong Kong for the management of children’s challenging behaviors. Training workshops in Team-Teach strategies are conducted by the Centre for Advancement of Inclusive and Special Education at the University of Hong Kong. The study reported here explored participants’ evaluations of a workshop for trainers, based on Team-Teach principles. In particular, attention was given to suitability of course objectives, relevance and quality of training materials, and skills of the trainers. Participants’ perceptions were then analyzed against their demographic information (ages, occupations, work settings). A follow-up study involving questionnaires and individual interviews was conducted one month after the training ended. Findings indicated that participants’ evaluations of the workshop were very positive, and similar to those reported in the UK, Northern Ireland and New Zealand. Brief suggestions are made for modifying some aspects of the workshop to suit the Hong Kong Chinese context. Copyright by Special Education Society of Hong Kong Limited. All Rights Reserved.
