About Staff Development. A Brief Highlighting Important Literature Since 1970 on Community College Staff Development.
Pezzullo, Diane, Comp.
This brief, divided into seven sections, focuses on community college staff development. The introductory section discusses the necessity of staff development and its purposes, the forms its activities take, and the components of effective programming. As indicated in the literature, effective programs should be holistic, reflect the goals of the faculty involved, and consist of three facets: (1) instructional development which involves problem-solving, evaluation, diagnosis, microteaching, methodology/technology, and instructional design; (2) organizational development, including departmental decision-making and conflict management, and team and management building; and (3) personal development through life planning workshops, interpersonal skills training, personal growth workshops, and supportive and therapeutic counseling. The remainder of the brief presents an annotated bibliography on staff development of published and unpublished materials from the ERIC files divided into six sections: comprehensive sources; examples from the colleges; particular staff needs; strategies for promoting staff development; rural and small colleges; and regional, state, and national cooperative and consortium arrangements.
