Partnership for Faculty Development: The University and the Community College.
Weddington, Doris
Although deeply concerned, community college faculty often have not been prepared through preservice education or previous teaching experiences to teach adult students with the variety of needs and orientations now characteristic of the community college population. This paper proposes a total staff development program involving a partnership between the university and the community college which would require interinstitutional coordination, coordination with community social agencies and business and industry, and coordination with the administration and disciplines of the university. To achieve institutional coordination the following steps are required: (1) a frank discussion of needs by representatives of both institutions; (2) a listing and selection of cooperative activities; (3) written detailed commitments and responsibilities; (4) the establishment and continuation of a community advisory council; (5) a controlled increase of cooperative activities based on community college needs; and (6) the establishment of only one interinstitutional program at a time, with other community colleges added by the university only as prior programs are firmly operational. Universities should include both teacher training and assistance with community college inservice workshops and seminars. (Author/RT)
