Illinois State University Kellogg Project. Professional Development Center. Teaching-Learning Center. Third Annual Report, 1978.
Rives, Stanley G.; And Others
The third year report of a four-year Kellogg project to develop a model faculty and instructional development program is presented. The goals for the third year are outlined and details of the activities of the Teaching-Learning Center are discussed. Among the activities described are consulting with faculty members, funding to enable faculty to attend off-campus meetings related to teaching, and leading and organizing workshops. It is explained that in preparation for the fourth year summative evaluation, the center is gathering data for the assessment process. The rationale and implementation of a new concept in the functioning of the center is explored, and dissemination activities, such as a conference on "Post-Compulsory Education in the 1980's," are summarized. The goals of the Professional Development Center are identified, and third year activities--including the educational leave program, faculty consultation, and workshop and training sessions--are considered. Dissemination activities of the program and a case study of educational leave are reviewed. Much of the report is in the form of appended texts of dissemination materials, including the following: "Professional Development and Teaching-Learing Centers at Illinois State University" (Stanley G. Rives); "Staff in Staff Development" (John R. Sharpham); "Faculty Training for Mid-Career Change" (Elmer Van Egmond); "Evaluating Staff Development Programs" (D. M. Rhodes); and "A Test of the Radiation of Information from Two Human Resource Workshops" (Melvin A. Goldstein). (PHR)
