Staff Development: A Profile of Local Institutional Effort.
North Carolina State Dept. of Community Colleges, Raleigh.
This document contains a description of the rationale for staff development programs in North Carolina community colleges and technical institutes, existing means for program delivery, the role of the Department's Office of Staff Development, and the results of a state-wide study conducted to assess the status of local institutional efforts. Results of the study showed there was a high level of administrative support for staff development, but an inadequate level of activities and a need for assistance in program planning. Other needs identified were in the areas of coordination, part-time personnel programs, specific skills training for both instructors and administrators, and resource availability. Scheduling and a lack of adequate resources were found to be the primary barriers to implementation of effective programs. Based on the findings of the study, the Office of Staff Development defined its immediate major goal to be that of increasing local efforts for staff development through promotion, encouragement, and assistance. Such support would take the form of aid in planning, consultation and advisement, conducting workshops, location and dissemination of new materials pertinent to staff development, and identification and securing of outside resources. Tabular study data are included throughout the report. (JDS)
