Writing in Postsecondary Occupational Education: Faculty Development Resource Manual. Materials Developed and Used by New York State Two-Year College Staff in the Role of Faculty Trainers.
Fadale, LaVerna M.; Winter, Gene M.
This resource manual resulted from a professional development project conducted in New York to provide two-year college staff members with the awareness, skills, and knowledge necessary to facilitate and reinforce occupational students' acquisition of writing skills. Introductory material outlines the purposes and objectives of the project, i.e., to increase instructors' understanding of the importance of writing skills to student comprehension of program content and organization; to assist faculty in adapting writing-related instructional techniques to their courses and programs; and to develop participants' abilities to transmit skills learned to their peers and colleagues. The next section provides synopses of the local faculty development projects, including the names of participating staff members at the 16 colleges involved; offers a summary profile of the strategies utilized at the colleges in their local efforts; and presents a series of topical agendas outlining local in-service programs. The final section presents the materials prepared for local staff development programs, including faculty survey forms used to assess instructors' awareness and perceptions of the importance of writing instruction; samples of sound writing assignments; standards for written work; and forms used in the evaluation of local programs.
