Norris, Neal A.
An evaluation is provided of the staff development efforts of Reading Area Community College (RACC). First, introductory material explains the methods used to evaluate the work of RACC's Professional Support Committee, which included training seminars, conferences, and workshops. Next, three members of the Professional Support Committee provide brief evaluative commentaries on the appropriateness and effectiveness of staff development activity at the college, giving special focus to facilities, faculty training seminars, professional development awards for external conferences and workshops, "the Personalized Professional Development Plan," and faculty development projects. Next, the results of qualitative assessments of the staff development activities provided by the Professional Support Program are presented. Evaluations are presented for the Instructional Technology Laboratory, Professional Support Center, Instructional Media Production Laboratory, and the Coordinator of Curriculum Development. Finally, a summary assessment contains background on the Professional Support Program, the Professional Support Committee, and the development activities and their effects. Appendices include instruments for the program evaluations, an outline of the professional development award request procedures, and a "Professional Support Program Guidebook." The guidebook includes sections on primary support facilities, basic support service areas, the "Personalized Professional Development Plan," and sources of financial support. (AYC)
