Professional Development Plan: Lansing Community College, 1979-80.
Cooper, John D., Comp.
The 1979-80 Professional Development Plan was designed to provide Lansing Community College administrators, faculty, and custodial staff with alternative methods of confronting job-related challenges. This descriptive report first presents a rationale and overview of the program, citing the importance of effective job performance to the college and the community it serves, and outlining the roles of the Professional Development Office and the divisional officers in providing for: (1) the individual's acquisition of new information and skills; (2) department or small group efforts to consider new approaches to problems or decisions; (3) discussion of interpersonal relations and personnel concerns; and (4) the sharing of ideas and information from within and outside the college. A calendar of workshops and seminars for 1979-80 follows, along with a list of alternative activities including sabbatical leaves, field experiences, and in-service programs at the department level. The report then presents the Professional Development Plan objectives and activities for the Applied Arts and Sciences, Student Personnel Services, Arts and Sciences, Business, College Services, and Learning Resources divisions. A formal statement of 20 program objectives categorized in terms of five general goals concludes the report. (JP)
