In-Service Training for Two-Year College Faculty and Staff; A Survey of Junior and Community College Administrators.
American Association of Junior Colleges, Washington, DC. Faculty Development Project.
In its Faculty Development Program, AAJC surveyed administrators to discover what in-service and other job-related programs now exist to encourage and help working teachers and to assess the availability and adequacy of continuing professional training. It covers only continuing or refresher studies for current faculty and staff, not pre-service academic preparation. Presidents of AAJC member colleges were asked to describe their own school's needs, and to compare them against the known national supply. Results from the 38% response are shown in graphic form. The data were collected and analyzed from March to June 1969. For each course area, data are given on existing and planned in-service training for college faculty and staff. Each section of the study has detailed and summary data on the national results. One appendix summarizes the results for the five geographical regions of the country, lists the states in each region, and the participating institutions. A second appendix gives more detailed tabular data on the survey's major results. A third reproduces the data collection instruments. The major observation was the deficiency of in-service training, which must be met by both 2- and 4-year institutions. The Association hopes this survey will serve as resource and stimulus to colleges, universities, government agencies, and all professionals concerned with the quality and quantity of in-service training. A later study will collect similar data from 2-year college faculty members. (HH)
