The Development of a Plan for the Implementation of a Faculty Development Program at Malcolm X College.
Williams, Richard W.
A two-part faculty development plan for Malcolm X College (Illinois) and a discussion of its development are presented. Phase One of the plan details the development of an informal, inter-disciplinary resource team to assist the faculty in identifying and solving instructional problems through (a) accepting and diagnosing the problem, (b) defining goals and roles, (c) eliminating problems and identifying resources, (d) determining and selecting possible solutions, and (e) implementing and evaluating the selected decision. Phase Two of the plan details the development of programs and activities that the administration should provide for the faculty in terms of orientation, in-house seminars and workshops, a professional library, college visitations, and educational project grants. A review of related literature is included and indicates that low faculty turnover and reduced mobility are two reasons for faculty development, effective programs must be holistic, and program goals should reflect those goals of the faculty involved.
