Community College Staff Development: Basic Issues in Planning.
Claxton, Charles S.
In the fall of 1975, the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) sponsored a workshop on planning for staff development, attended by four-person teams from each of 12 two-year colleges in the South. The task of each team was to develop a plan of staff development for its institution, and, on return to the home campus, to refine the plan and begin implementation or expansion of a staff development program. Three months after the workshop, each of the 12 colleges was visited by an SREB staff person to assist the teams with their work and to identify problem areas in staff development program implementation. This discussion of issues in planning staff development programs is drawn from the experiences and concerns of the teams during the workshop, from the visits to the 12 participating colleges and to other institutions with existing programs, and from extensive conversations with persons working in staff development. The issues reviewed include administrative organization, determination of needs, appropriate program content, program promotion, funding, and steps in planning. A discussion of the workshop design is also included. (Author/DC)
