Post-Secondary Personnel Development. Volume 2.
Doty, Charles R., Ed.; Gepner, Ronald, Ed.
Personnel development programs for postsecondary vocational and technical faculty in selected postsecondary educational institutions in several states are identified and described according to the following criteria: (1) objectives of the program; (2) organization of the program; (3) cost of the program; (4) motivation of staff; (5) pedagogical skills emphasized; (6) technical content emphasized; (7) constraints on the program; (8) the evaluation process; and (9) program changes needed. Programs at 25 colleges in 17 different states are described. The programs are institutional programs in continuous operation, not departmental or for special groups. Each is focused on upgrading the teaching skills of technically competent, yet pedagogically unprepared, persons from business and industry who are instructors in vocational and technical education in community colleges and technical institutes.
