Staff Development at Lincoln Trail College.
O'Banion, Terry; And Others
This report, initiated at the request of the Lincoln Trail College (LTC) faculty, provides a series of recommendations regarding a continuing professional development program specially tailored to meet the needs and characteristics of the staff at LTC. A questionnaire was developed to determine activity relevance and availability, preference toward different formats, and obstacles which might impede participation in staff development activities. Responses of the 43 respondents were tabulated for the entire group and for four subgroups: 16 full-time faculty, 14 part-time faculty, 7 administrators, and 6 support staff. Program recommendations are then made by subgroup on the basis of responses to the survey. For each cluster a list of activities and resources are presented. This is followed by recommendations for a basic first year program. The program is based on results indicating that not enough time has been allocated for staff development in the past, staff development opportunities are not available in reasonable proximity to LTC, and staff members prefer one-day workshops at LTC offered by outside consultants. Organizational schemes and means for program evaluation are discussed. The appendix includes an interview guide and the responses to the survey. (AH)
