Jefferson Coll., Hillsboro, MO.
This booklet explains Jefferson College's Professional Development System (PDS), a promotion system for rewarding outstanding faculty accomplishment, and explains the calculations used in evaluating faculty performance. After explaining that the PDS was created so that the rewarding of faculty would not be arbitrary but in proportion to their professional achievements and service, the booklet describes the system in terms of its underlying philosophy; rationale for promotion requirements; methods, forms, and procedures used for awarding points; appeal procedures; application for promotion; advance earning of points; maintenance of PDS files; and functions and procedural guidelines of the PDS panel. Description sheets detailing the criteria and formulas for awarding points, along with their related point calculation forms, are provided to account for the following faculty activities: work in curriculum or instruction; involvement in institutional services; attendance at lectures or workshops; formal course work; in-service training; work experience; participation in professional organizations or conferences; publications; creative exhibits or performances; related civic activities; self-instruction programs; travel; and receipt of grants. The annual schedule for PDS is included. (DAB)
