In-Service Training for Two-Year College Faculty and Staff: The Role of the Graduate Institutions.
Chronister, Jay L.
The American Association of Junior Colleges undertook a survey of 228 junior college administrators to assess the adequacy, as well as availability, of in-service professional development activities for staffs of 2-year institutions. The results indicated that there was a critical need for in-service programs at or near the 2-year institutions. Graduate institutions must cooperate with the 2-year institutions in planning such programs. Approaches to provide these programs must be developed, evaluated, and implemented. The programs should carry some kind of graduate recognition which will be applicable to an advanced degree; adequate instructional and library resources must be provided and, where appropriate, regional resource centers must be established. Video-tape and other instructional techniques should be used whenever feasible. (AF)
