Proceedings: The Conference on Questions and Issues in Planning Community College Staff Development Programs, July 1-3, 1974.
Hammons, James O., Ed.
The papers and other materials contained in this monograph resulted from the events of the "Planning for Community College Staff Development" conference. Keynote addresses include: (1) a survey of the literature which reflects the present state of the art and points out areas in need of research; (2) critical questions and issues faced by any college attempting to design a staff development program; (3) description of successful staff development programs in large, medium, and small institutions; Discussions of (4) evaluation methods, and (5) the use of consultants; (6) recommendations. One major aspect of the conference was a simulation exercise on staff development designed to provide an experience which would enable the participants to synthesize all they had been hearing from keynote speakers. Participants were divided into groups, and group reports were prepared and presented. Criteria used in judging programs were based on the assumption that staff development programs should be: developmental, democratic, inclusive, supportive, self-evaluative, self-prescriptive, and wide spectrum. Appended are an annotated bibliography, sample community college staff development programs, a conference registration list, and results of an evaluation questionnaire which was administered to participants.
