The Conceptualization and Development of a Staff Development Model for Community College Part-Time Faculty.
Pedras, Melvin J.
A study was conducted to provide data that could be used in the conceptualization and development of a staff development model for part-time faculty at Clark Community College (CCC). The study involved a review of the literature on part-time faculty development and a survey of administrators and full- and part-time faculty at CCC. Based on study findings, the following part-time faculty training needs were identified and prioritized: community college mission, instructional development and delivery, legal aspects of education, and classroom and laboratory management. Part-time faculty perceived their own need for training in these areas as lower than full-time faculty and much lower than administrators perceived part-time faculty needs to be. The training model that resulted from the study included the following components: (1) administration of the training; (2) determination of training needs; (3) development and organization of curriculum components; (4) identification of populations to be served; (5) logistics of the training program; (6) funding; and (7) support services. Appendices include the survey instrument and written responses of part-time faculty. (Author/LAL)
