Faculty Growth through Industrial Training.
Burke, Sherry W.; Winner, Connie
This report describes and illustrates a number of aspects of the faculty development program at Delaware Technical and Community College (DTCC). After an introductory section providing a brief history of DTCC and the growth of its involvement in industrial training programs for local firms, section II presents guidelines for successfully implementing industrial training programs. The guidelines indicate that: (1) the administration must agree that a program is needed; (2) a program coordinator must be appointed; (3) the faculty must be oriented to participate; (4) program guidelines must be established; (5) the program must be planned strategically; (6) intensive programs must be developed to train faculty members to participate; and (7) the program must be evaluated. Section III presents a discussion of strategic planning and its appropriateness for industrial training programs. In section IV, efforts to promote faculty growth at DTCC are illustrated with materials from a "Train the Trainer" workshop, which prepares faculty to go into industry. Finally, section V examines ways of linking faculty growth to industrial training, providing a form used to develop individual and departmental growth plans and including as an example the plan developed by the Dental Hygiene Department.
