Professional Development Plan.
Cooper, John; And Others
Refinement of planning, goals, and objectives was emphasized in the third year of the Professional Development Program at Lansing Community College. Goals for the overall college program were to: (1) continue to offer options for professional development which relate to people's immediate situation and department; (2) make more opportunities available for faculty to explore new teaching strategies that they may apply to their own classroom instruction; (3) involve administrative personnel in professional development programs, planning, and the reinforcement of individual efforts to change or improve performance; (4) refine current professional development programs and initiatives; and (5) evaluate on-going staff development activities as they relate to personal objectives and institutional missions. A professional development laboratory and office supports individuals, programs, and divisions throughout the college relative to needs assessment and evaluation, campus-wide programs, and maintaining quality instructional programs. The professional development plans for the academic year 1978-79 are outlined for the business, college services, arts and sciences, student personnel services, learning resource, and applied arts and sciences divisions. An appendix discusses alternative approaches to professional development. (MB)
