Professional Development Project for Two-Year College Vocational and Technical Faculty.
Kelly, M. Frances
The objective of this project was to develop a model designed to expose the new community college faculty member to the essential components of community college teaching. Specifically the objectives were (1) to aid an individual to be aware of himself as a teacher and as a participant in the 2-year college environment as well as in the larger community, (2) to identify the various roles of faculty members, and (3) to ease the transition of the individual from his former work role to the role of the faculty member in a community college. The content of the model was developed around these three general areas of concern, and was generated by utilizing both recently employed 2-year faculty and veteran faculty as consultants. They assumed major responsibility for the focus and specificity of the content. It is characteristic of this model that while the content is structured and was identified by consensus, the technique by which content is to be presented is left to the discretion of the individual leader.
