In the fall of 1991, the Western Regional Center for Drug-Free Schools and communities published "Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention: An Overview for Educators." This model course outline was designed to assist institutes of higher education in offering preservice and continuing education courses for teachers and other educational personnel. This report describes the experiences and perceptions of the instructor and class participants at the California State University, Hayward (CSUH), who used the model course materials as well as documents the reasons and circumstances that impeded its implementation at the University of the Pacific (UOP) and John F. Kennedy University (JFK). Findings in eight areas are reported: (1) CSUH piloted the model course, and UOP and JFK reviewed it; (2) Teachers considered the content of the model course important to their professional development while nurses and counselors considered it to be a review; (3) Class participants identified particularly helpful content areas; (4) Model course content was too repetitive; (5) There were gaps in format and content of model course; (6) Class participants found format disjointed while the instructor found it easy to follow; (7) General concerns about the course were identified; and (8) Useful course aspects were listed. Three appendixes contain interview protocols. (JBJ)
