American Historical Association Faculty Development Program: Planning and Implementation.
Hoffmann, Charles
The planning and implementation processes of the Long Island Faculty Development Program are described. Originally sponsored by the American Historical Association's Faculty Development Program to improve history instruction, this project includes faculty representatives from four Long Island universities, colleges, and junior colleges. The program plans to achieve maximum impact by selecting teams of five experienced, innovative teachers from each of the four participating institutions. These teams share experiences and resources with teachers from other institutions, acquire new skills, and then return to their home institutions to work as a nucleus for disseminating new teaching approaches among their colleagues. Three basic strategies used to launch the program include a content focus on historical areas and problems rather than teaching skills per se, a conscious effort to develop the broadest base of support among all levels of personnel and students, and emphasis on the ongoing need to improve teaching. Based on both the successes and mistakes of the program, 17 general and specific lessons that have been learned in the planning and implementation of the program are outlined. (Author/DE)
