Oakton Community College Staff Development Program.
Mittler, Mary L.; Dolan, R. Edmund
Since its inception in 1974, the Staff Development Program at Oakton Community College (Illinois) has been responsible for over 44 seminars, workshops, mini-courses, and guest speakers. Initially, modules (as given workshops are called) were generated by and for faculty alone. In fall 1975, however, the Staff Development Program became operational for Oakton administrators and classified staff as well. At present, a faculty member coordinates the program, with the aid of a dean and a classified staff member. After suggestions for offerings are solicited from college employees, interest surveys are taken. Then, qualified leaders are sought, and schedules arranged and publicized. In addition, a Staff Development Committee comprised of representatives from each segment of the college meets to review proposals and evaluate completed modules. Though participation is voluntary, interest in the modules has been extensive. Four appendices to this report document the growth of the program: (1) the original proposal for the program; (2) figures for each module showing the total number of hours expended, number of sessions, and enrollment; (3) an idea solicitation memo, and program and evaluation sheets for the All College Workshop; and (4) an evaluation of the program for 1974-75.
